“And if I only could
I’d make a deal with God
And I’d get him to swap our places
Be running up that road
Be running up that hill
Be running up that building….”
Running Up That Hill (A Deal With God) from Kate Bush’s 1985 LP Hounds of Love
You can’t really go wrong with a mountain on a sunny day. This is one of the Gwanaksan trails in Gwanakgu, South West Seoul. There is a part closer to Seoul National University entrance that has impressive views in return for a fairly easy climb.
On the way down, wooden totems line the path with their expressive carved painted faces.
