Sweltering summer keeps on goin'

Summer heat rages on but that doesn't mean I can lie back and do nothing. I've been mad busy, running around north, south, east and west. I spent so much time waiting for buses in the burning sun, dripping sweat like a new water gwishin - deodorant was my best friend this month.

Waiting for the bus at Paldalmun (Paldal Gate) in Suwon. A very different atmosphere from Seoul downtown bus stops, it's on one side of a roundabout that encircles the gate. Paldalmun is a part of the 18th century built Hwaseong Fortress, a UNESCO cultural heritage site.

I stood right in front of the open doors of a makeup shop to take advantage of the cool air conditioning they were wasting.

Too bad the water of Cheongyechon isn't fit for wading in. At least it's September now. The rain will cool things down, hopefully.
