The Nokcheon Adventure

15 Nov

 Have you ever had a great adventure in  big city? Have you ever found out something new in a place where you always go? A few weeks ago, we went to Nokcheon station. It might sound a bit boring to just go to a normal subway station, but we didn’t go to Nokcheon station by subway, or the bus, or the taxi like other people do. We went through tall buildings, strange routes, and woods. We had an adventure! When we got out of the library, the adventure started.

 On Saturday, I went to Nokcheon station with my classmates and Brent. We first went around Induk university. There were a lot of people playing and exercising as always. We crossed the street and went to the other side of the road. On this side, there was a big wall. There were beautiful paintings about ‘The Little Prince’ on it. The paintings told the whole story from the beginning to the end. At the end of the wall there was a little park. There was a bench for people to take a rest. The yellow and red fall leaves were very beautiful. It was like a scene from a drama. We came out of the park and went on. While we were walking we saw an old lady under the trees picking something. She was wearing bright purple clothes with  light green pants. It was quite a funny sight. We went through the apartments and the markets. Then we followed Brent into a scary route. It actually wasn’t that spooky but he called it ‘scary route’. There weren’t many people. There were lots of tall trees instead. Wind blew on my face, I could smell fresh air and sounds of little birds chirping came into my ears. It was a new place for me in a city. In the woods, there was a small temple colored in a light minty color. It looked like one of the magic houses in a fantasy. A few meters from the temple, there were lot of graves and a old traditional house.It was called the Wolgye dong Gaksimje. Near the Gaksimje there were two fat chickens walking around. It was the first time seeing a chicken in this kind of place. So it a bit interesting. We went past Hanul kindergarten and went into a supermarket. Brent bought each of us a bottle of water. I was very thirsty then.

 After all the walking, we went hiking on Choan mountain. When I went in I tripped over by mistake. There was a big hole right in front of the entrance. It was a great place for people to trip over. Emily helped me get up. While we were hiking, we saw a poodle training. It was very good at jumping. The dog hopped lightly like a little rabbit. At the middle of the mountain there were parks, tennis courts and soccer fields. There were lots of big people training in the soccer fields. They looked very tired. Next to all these courts, there was a forest full of tall pine trees and a fence that cut the forest in half. In the forest there was an old man sleeping on the ground with his jacket on the bottom. He looked very peaceful. We didn’t want to wake him up so we went across quietly. We went on our way and saw a camping place. There were people  camping that very moment. I also want to come camping next time. It is going to be so cool! Near the camping place there was a stream running down. We followed the stream and came into a small village.

 It was quite strange for a village to place in that kind of place. I never knew there was a place like this here. The houses were very small and dirty. It was quiet. It was like the country side. Some houses had briquets. There was a puppy between a gap barking loudly. It looked afraid. We got out of the village and walked along a big road with no cars. On one side of the road there was fire burning op little pieces of paper. It was so interesting. There were other weird things too. There was a shopping cart in the middle of the road. There was still a 100 won coin in it. We tied to get it out but it was no matter. We walked a few more minutes and finally arrived at Nokcheon station.

 It was a whole new experience today. I saw cool things and strange things. I think it was a good idea to walk to Nokcheon station this way. The adventure was fun and I hope I can have another one next time.
