Friday, May 28:   Today, I venture out on over an hour-long train ride to Daegu Arboretum.  When I finally arrive, I enjoy a long walk around the grounds, taking pictures of the lovely greenery.

Daegu Arboretum was built on a sanitary landfill. It is home to more than 1,000 species of plants including giant cacti, flowers, medicinal herbs, and trees. In addition, the facility regularly holds ecology experience programs for students and young children. Meanwhile, Daegu Arboretum has been recognized as an excellent model of ecosystem restoration (Visit Korea: Daegu Arboretum).

After my long trek to and around the Arboretum, I make my way slowly back my apartment near Keimyung University, where I’m too exhausted to do anything the rest of the day.
