On Saturday, November 29 2008 I went mountain climbing. Yes people ~ you read right... Sheetal Makhan put on the hiking shoes and headed to Sorae Mountain. Thousands of Koreans flock to the mountains every week-end. It's great exercise and a chance for them to get in touch with nature. I've been invited a couple of times, and I usually reply saying - "Thanks, but do I really look like I do that?!"
Anyone and everyone who knows me will vouch that I'd rather spend my Saturday afternoon strolling through the bustling streets of Seoul - not hiking up a mountain. But yes, I did it! And I was quite proud of myself, too! Granted, it wasn't all that steep ~ but then again I went verrry slowly. Coming down wasn't too bad - although my calves and thighs were in absolute pain the following day! It took us over an hour to get to the top, and about 45 minutes back down.
(Me: How much longer till we get to the top?)
