The festival takes place on Jeju-do, an Island with much more to offer than rape blossoms. Known as "Korea's Hawaii," Jeju is world famous for it's black sand beaches, volcanic mountain, and many other natural wonders. There also might be unicorns there according to North Korea. While these are all great reasons to visit the island, Jeju's main attraction goes by "Karl."
Karl is a fellow TaLK scholar. Karl lives on Jeju island. Karl received the "congeniality award" for his exemplary behavior. It's no wonder he won. He's a sweet boy. An innocent and honest young man. At least that's what I thought.
I had to further explore this side of Karl. I had to go to Jeju.
After the pony show came a stop at Loveland.
After a group dinner, the day's last obligation, a friend and I took a cab across town directly to Karl.
In excitement I may have accidentally told the cab driver to "go to Karl." Fifteen minutes later my dream became a reality. Reunion. This picture of us is the only way I can describe the feeling.
- Karl I think you're slightly grumpier than I remember
- Jeju is neat
- I want a pony
