The boy and I went zip lining in Mungyeong last Friday on our day-off. It was pouring rain and the hills were filled with low fog -- and it was absolutely incredible. Nine courses starting from the top of the highest peak and gradually, we made our way down from line to line. It felt like we were in a rain forest! And, of course, we wore rain ponchos like champs.
At the second to last course, there was a contest to see who could blow up the biggest balloon while zipping. I won. So I got a box of pencils made from recycled materials. A fine prize, indeed.
Coming in backwards!

P.S. We both got new shoes a couple of weeks ago (shown) and incidentally, the balloons we picked for the contest matched our shoes. And another guy's matched his shoes, as well. I guess we all really are drawn to certain colors. Sweet.
