Hongdae heat wave

Korea got hot!  It seems likes someone snapped their fingers and spring was over.  It creeped up to almost 90 degrees fahrenheit.  I decided to go out anyway but I prepared myself with extra sunscreen and water.

Hongdae is the shortened name for the Hongik University neighborhood.  Hongik is an art university and there are always people hanging around to sing, play guitar, dance, paint, draw, and do general artistic things that I have no talent for.

I’ve been to Hongdae many times and there is always something new to see or do.  As you can imagine, it gets crazy on the weekend.  But even with the crowds, it stays fun.
