“Rest” by Eugene Lee (ETA ’16-17)

This issue’s contest theme was placement cities and showing off where you live or lived during your grant year in South Korea.

Eugene Lee shares this photo with us, saying, “My favorite thing about Jeongeup (Jeollabuk-do) so far has been the long trail by the river, where people walk, run, or bike to soak in the nature around them. It’s definitely been a good place to get away from everything for a bit!”

"DMZ" by Karl Schultz (2014-15 ETA). August 2014.

“DMZ” by Karl Schutz (2014-15 ETA). August 2014.

In Karl’s words, “I took this photo near Hwacheon, South Korea, during the 2014 orientation trip out there. Sometimes it’s easy to forget there’s more to the DMZ than the North and South Korean soldiers facing off, and I think this image serves as a nice reminder of the natural beauty you can find at the border.”
