I remember being startled by the calendar declaring September. Now September is slipping away and if I hadn't been a diligent (i.e. OCD) diarykeeper I would have no idea what I have done the past several weeks. My memory is a complete blur.
Although I don't announce it here, I've been keeping up with my Napzzak Project and posting quite regularly. The latest batch was taken on Namsan (South Mountain) on a cloudy drizzling day.
Girl with Seoul Tower in backgroundSeoul is surrounded by hills and mountains. Namsan sits right in the middle of the city, though. Despite all the urban growth crowding in, it has held to its nature, both figuratively and literally.
Look at all the wildlife you can encounter!
The pheasants are slow, so they're easier to spot. (Hee hee hee.)
You can either walk up by the hiking trail through the pines and breathe in their scent while lounging in the rest areas...
...or you can walk up alongside the paved roadway and rest in more conventional benches.
I hiked the first half and switched to the pavement the latter half. Took a self portrait on the way. I love how goofy I look in these things.
At the top is Seoul Tower. Didn't take a picture of it (like all those years in Paris I never took a photo of the Eiffel Tower) but there was a floating wire man waiting in the plaza just dying to be photographed. See?
The floating sculptures are part of French artist Cedric Le Borgne's Travellers series. They will be installed there until the end of 2010. I plan to go again at night to take a picture with the spotlights shining.
