Photo Essay: Gyeseong

Last Saturday was a gorgeous spring day. Jordan and I walked around the village and took a few photos.


The trees have leaves again and I am so happy!

We stopped at the GS 25 (a convenience store) and grabbed a bottle of Gatorade to sit and watch cars go past our one stoplight in town.

Our one and only gas station in town, right next door to the post office.20160424_142238 small

A nice view of CEV from the main road through town.

This is a view down the main street (again, by the one stoplight). Our village has two bulgogi restaurants, one or two other restaurants, a post office, gas station, bike repair shop, elementary school, several farm-and-garden shops, a 7-11, a GS25, a bank outpost for the geriatrics, and a health clinic for the geriatrics. That’s really about it. And plenty of onion fields, of course.


See the bike repair shop? Jordan and I bought a tire for a friend’s scooter last week. Service was immediate, though he wasn’t happy about being pulled from watching his baseball game.


On the edge of town, near the highway on-ramp, is a very nice golf course. Halfway up the mountain to the golf course is a nice view of all the onion fields.

That’s Gyeseong!
