Haeundae Beach, Busan, South Korea

I don't bring my good camera to the beach, but the light was so amazing that day it didn't even matter. Fall is fast approaching here. By the time we got to the beach the swimming season was long past, but still, with a view like this you can't complain.

Also, next week is the Korean holiday Chuseok, so since we've got some time off, we're headed to BEIJING! Of everywhere I've been so far in my life, this is the first I can say that has held a place in my imagination since I was a child. The Forbidden City, the Great Wall, I literally cannot wait!

Korean Sunset

The view from our apartment window in Masan:

As a coastal girl, I usually don't like how mountains interfere with a nice, pretty, horizony sunset, but sometimes Korea just gets it right.

Also, I just saw Little Ashes, which is not a very good movie. Why would three Spanish guys at a college in Madrid be speaking English? But it did make me homesick for Cadaques and Port Lligat. And the thought that I was playing on the exact same pebble beaches that Robert Pattionson had been filming on a few months earlier (and didn't even know it) is interesting to say the least! The movie is worth checking out, if for no other reason, to see everyone's favorite boy toy DalĂ­-ing it up.
