When these men saw me snapping friends' photos, they wanted theirs taken, too!
We ate a Korean pancake, kimbap and miso soup, at a restaurant near the entrance of Gwangak Mountain. It only cost us 2,000W (2USD) each.
There were small barbecued birds for sale, as well as chicken's feet, as seen in the above photo. I tried chicken's feet on my birthday and they are bony, without much meat on them. They taste how they look.
I felt a bit silly wearing a running suit, because my friends showed up at the subway station, in jeans and nice shirts. Who knew you can be under dressed on a mountain!
Buddha's birthday is coming up, so the path was decked out with lanterns.
There is more than one temple on Gwangak Mountain. This one is closest to ground level, and involves only a small climb.
