This is one thing I find myself missing a lot. Grass. Yes, grass. I don’t know why this random patch of grass was there, but I just needed to feel it.

Every home I had in the states had a lawn and a backyard, and so did the neighbors. I seriously took grass for granted before living in Korea. Now of course that doesn’t mean that Korea doesn’t have grass, or open spaces, but you are unlikely to come across it often if you live in one of the medium to large cities. Some large cities have housing that is situated near mountains but most of the time you can’t just walk right outside and see large swatches of grass.

I’m lucky where I can walk to a park next to my apartment but most of the time I don’t realize that I’ve gone so long without seeing it. Just another one of those things I had to get used to when I moved here.
