How was the weather this week?:

I traveled to South Korea towards the end of August. Much like the weather in New York, this time of year is the end of summer in Korea. My first couple of days here were very hot and humid, with the highest temperature being in the 90s.

What animals did I see this week? :

This week I saw a squirrel on campus. Squirrels in Korea a lot browner, unlike the grayish ones I'm used to seeing in the U.S. Our campus also has a lot of cats and kittens roaming around. Students frequently stop to pet them.

What was the coolest thing I saw in nature this week?:

The coolest thing I saw in nature this week was Koi fish. My study abroad group and I visited a mall outside of Seoul which had the nicest ponds. Everyone circled around the pond to watch the fish swim.


Other Nature News from this week:

Seoul is a very mountainous city, and unlike the flat streets I'm used to in New York, the sidewalks were steep and uphill.
