Weekend in Gwangju Part II


Continued from Part I

Nicole and I got up and went downtown to eat brunch at a place called Alleyway. There are a few foreign bars in Gwangju, all of them are downtown. The Alleyway is one of them and they serve a delicious brunch on Sunday mornings. Most Koreans don’t eat brunch or much of a breakfast really, so brunch establishments are few and far between. I ordered french toast stuffed with poutine and a coffee. It was delicious.

Nicole and I spent the rest of the day walking around downtown and recouping from week of teaching.

That night Nicole and I went for a hike up a little mountain behind Nicole’s apartment. At the top of the mountain you can see almost all of Gwangju below. It was an incredible view. Nicole and I experimented with light-painting as well and got some cool photos out of it.

    Need to know: was your brunch covered with maple syrup for the French toast, or with gravy for the poutine, or both ?!?!?!?!

      Great question Iain, there was gravy in the middle and syrup on the side.
