For Buddha’s Birthday long weekend, Luca planned a trip to the southwest corner of Seoul. First he took us to Suncheon and guided us around a wetlands nature preserve where there were reeds as tall as a full grown man. Then we drove over to the green tea fields at Boseong where we picked tea leaves and Luca oversaw the tea making process. On the way back to Suncheon we stopped at Yulpo because Luca wanted to play in the sand and experience the ocean for the first time. Of course, since we were on the coast, he also suggested we take advantage of the fresh seafood and have a clam-themed dinner. And, finally, after such an adventurous weekend, he earned a well-deserved nap on the ride home.
