After a bumpy (and somewhat long) bus ride, I finally got off at the bus stop in front of the Amisan Observatory (아미산 전망대) and made my way up the hill to get to the main entrance. The place was quite. The location is kinda in the middle of nowhere and maybe because it's still early, not a lot of people were there. I walked around the small outdoor area they have around the observatory and found the spot where I can view the Nakdong river (낙동강) and the surrounding area from up here. I stared at the view while accompanied by the singing cicadas. Not my preferable soundtrack I should say, but hey, at least with the combination of the breezy wind blowing it totally made it feels like an actual summer day. I remember thinking that this place is a good place to get some thinking done. The atmosphere was very serene and although everything seemed to be very still, I can still hear the sound of the rustling leaves here and there when the wind blew.
I encountered a Korean couple who were visiting from out of town during my walk around the place. They asked me to take a picture of them with their camera since they didn't have any picture together. It still amazes me to this day to see older Korean couple who still take trips and travel together. Maybe because I grew up seeing a lot of husband figures who rarely want to travel together with just their wives. Most of them prefer to stay at home and unless the whole family is involved, they usually seldom take leisure trips.
After I'm done with my exploration I sat around for a bit enjoying the view and the breezy wind. And after I think I heard enough of the cicadas singing, I walked down the hill and made my way to the bus stop to catch the bus back to the city.
Updates: It's been a hectic pas couple of months of work and traveling and now I'm back (hopefully) to update this blog. There are more trips to come too in the next two month, so stay tuned guys! Will be rolling out new posts in the next couple of days :)
