“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!”
