Last week, I went to a lovely chrysanthemum festival at the Jogyesa Temple near Insadong. I believe the festival is there until November 11, so there’s still time to go and see this autumn flower showcased in many different ways.
After enjoying the flowers, my friend and I wandered around the streets near Gyeongbokgung. We wanted to eat lunch at Bukchon Kalguksu, but the line was ridiculously long. We ended up at a small cafe filled with mirrors, and I had a grilled gorgonzola and almond sandwich that came with a side of honey to dip it in. Delicious!
