Weekend in Gwangju Part II


Written by:

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.
