Today is October 6. It definitely does not feel like October in Daegu because it is currently 84 degrees. Being in this heat today, it reminded me of a few weeks ago when Shannon and I walked around Bukchon Hanok Village sweating our tails off. I thought this day would be the last time I would be able to comfortably walk around in pillow-case-esque dresses. Looks like I still have a few days left of it.
We stayed the night in a traditional Korean home right outside Insadong. The stay included trying on hanboks, learning the Korean tea ceremony, as well as Korean calligraphy.
After about an hour of calligraphy, our brains hurt from all of the concentration… Koreans see calligraphy as a way to exercise the mind. We definitely felt our brains turning to flubber.
My dress is from Zara, and my shoes are Birkenstock.
