Dongseo English Cafe First Hike Event

I may have planned too long a hike.  Perhaps some were scared away.  For the four of us, it was a lot of fun, with some sore knees at the end.

Here we are at the start, only a few minutes from Dongseo U - seen in the background.
 We hiked around the first peak, then down near the Kudeok Tunnel.  Then we hiked nearly straight up.  Things were a haze as we rested at the water spring. Okay, my camera lens was a little sweaty.
 After some steep climbing, we reached an alpine meadow.  I sang The Hills Are Alive with the Sound of Music but no one was impressed.
 On the meadow, we found someone to take a picture for us so I finally appear in the frame.

 At a pavillion overlooking EumGung-Dong

And, Eum-gung-dong.

Near the final peak.
 We were tired at the final peak and very grateful for the Ice-cream man!

Here was our route.
As a middle-aged guy, I had no trouble keeping up on the climb and the level portions but we were all hurting on the descents.  My poor knees!  I had always known that Dongseo University was built on a steep mountain but now I no longer feel special - Donga University also required a large vertical climb of its students.

This was fun and we had great weather.  Now, I only wish that we had more than two students.  Thanks, Danny May, for joining us - I will keep the student's names private.

We suffered technical problems and could not watch documentaries in the first week.  In their place, we watched The Simpsons.
Last week, thirteen students watched 'The Simpsons', six answered all the questions correctly and one name was randomly chosen from those six.
Congratulations go to: S. Hyeon Hwa!
You will receive an email and phone call from Brian Sunday evening.  Please go to the English Cafe and tell the counter staff your full name and student number to collect your 5,000 won gift certificate!

Games got off to a slow start but seven students played games with English professors and four won gift certificates
Congratulations to: K. Na-yeon, L. Hye-min, A. Ji-young
and C. Yeon-ju!

The poster series is titled 'Study Tips' and you can view and answer questions for one more week before the series changes.  Remember, the prize for the poster series is Ten thousand won!
