Today was a day full of labor. The first one in a while, and let me tell you that I am very tired and sore.
We were preparing the land for what I believe is to be a garden. The first thing was to rake and hoe the land so as to pull out the rocks and soften the soil. After the rocks were out we would either fill the wheelbarrow to dump them on the edge or we'd left the bigger ones and manually move them over. After this, Mr Lee has me shoveling soil and rocks from a hill on one side of the field and filling a wheelbarrow with this dirt to cover over the land we just raked. A few hours shoveling dirt and moving big heavy rocks definitely took a lot out of me. I think the most tiring part for me is the wheelbarrow as it was a little short for me and so i end up using my back muscles in a slightly less than comfortable movement. Apparently the average korean man is shorter than me. who knew?
After the day tilling the land, Zarina and I took Santi out for a walk. Santi may not look like it, but she is a powerful dog. It is always fun to walk her, but sort of less fun when she is pulling you up and down jagged slippery rocks on a hill. Especially after a tiring day.
