We were invited by our friends Mr. Yeom and his wife to visit a secluded tea house hidden in the verdant mountains of Damyang. Nature, especially mountains, have their own kind of silence, the kind that knows you and asks, “Hey, where you been?”
We enjoyed the quiet, the tea, the conversation, and the slow walking. On the way home, we took a country road and visited the school where Jeungsu teaches. Kaiser and Jeungsu raced aroun the school’s track–both claimed victory. Kaiser was treated to an ice cream.
