my grandfather is so funny. i told him i belonged to a health club and that i had been working out everyday. he pretty much yelled at me in korean saying, “What the hell do you need a healthclub for when you live right behind a mountain?!?
Everything you need in a workout is all up there!” i love his old school mentality. no, i really do admire it. one day i hope to be just like him.
the old people here are so strong and healthy for their age. a halmoni passed me up on the mountain today while i was huffing and puffing and taking a break. not to mention, they live longer than the those in america. at least the one’s in my family do. that’s one of the many reasons why i’m out here. i look at my grandfather and my eldest uncle, who are both over 75. both are as strong as an ox and could probably beat the shit out of me if they really wanted to. i’m here to learn from the best on how to live a long and healthy life.
