Hey folks. I haven't forgotten about you...I'm just busy as heck, and running all over Andong last weekend, while fun as anything (thanks to everyone who came out) wiped me out for the next week of balmy days, nights that cool down too much, maintenance at The Hub of Sparkle, and, you know, classes.
Happy birthday, Gord. Also you, Anila, my lovely little sister.
Matt VV: holy cow, man! Thanks for playing Spritualized for me: they've been rocking my planet every moment I've had to be near a pair of speakers or headphones!
Meanwhile, the write-up on the Andong trip is in the workings...but I'm not sure yet when it'll be finished. Here's a bunch of the bestest photos, though, to keep you interested.
Dosan Seowon (one of the most important confucian academies in Korean history: it's on the 1000 won bill, and prominent on the old 1000 won note).
In and around Hahoe Folk Village
This is the same place I took one of my favorite pictures ever, last October.
Some fake folk village near the Andong dam.
In and around downtown Andong:
Brick pagodas are special.
Good times, dear readers. Good times. To everyone who came out: thanks for showing up!
More later...if possible.
