Yongin tombsWith a window of only a few weeks to catch the full splendour of Korea’s autumn foliage, I took a short walk around the hills of Yongin on Sunday. Networks of sometimes-maintained trails criss-cross just about every wooded area, and I puffed around enjoying the slightly unseasonal warmth and the friendly multitude of small dogs chained outside peoples’ houses. I heard rather than saw a deer (bounding off into the thick undergrowth), and spent several minutes facing off with a squirrel who (against all reason) wanted to get past me without climbing a tree.
