JH had been telling me about a park nearby his house. You see the man lives in a concrete jungle in the Northeastern part of Seoul. It is an area corner to corner with "Villas" or tiny housing units. The only plant life you see in this kind of neighborhood are the ones growing out of pots from people's doorsteps. So when he mentioned "park" and "nearby my house" I certainly was curious.
Sometime after dinner we went outside and I followed him to the park, making our way towards a mountain.
There was even a small garden with some corn growing in it.
We came to a part where there was a slide to roll down. I had fun and rolled down it, but what made it even more special was that there was a kid at the bottom of the slide and before I knew it he was right behind me. Kind of odd and fun.
JH had some fun on the exercise equipment.
I had fun discovering this green gem in the "backyard" of JH's neighborhood. It certainly gave me some confidence that Seoul isn't always this slew of concrete and drainage pipes.
