Two Aprils ago, I went to South Korea with my mom and my brother to meet relatives I had never met. They took us many places and I took many pictures. It was beautiful there. We had come right in the middle of spring (and Mom was wrong when she told me I would only need a windbreaker). They took us to Buddhist temples and a traditional village and the ancient capital of Korea where the tombs of the great rulers still stand, with trees labeled in Korean and English.
