I got here just in time for the persimmons harvest in Youngdong South Korea.
I was also in Youngdong for the grape harvest and festival.
But the persimmon trees are everywhere.
The trees look as if they are covered with orange Christmas ornaments while dropping their leaves.
Everywhere you look some one is picking persimmons.
Some to be sold at market, others for home use.
Many are peeled then hung up to dry outside to be eaten at a later date.
The frost enhances their taste.
Youngdong and the surrounding area is one of the most beautiful places in South Korea.
The people are some of the nicest and welcoming you would ever want to meet.
Their sense of sharing is something i have never seen before. It is a custom that just comes naturally to them.
I love it here.
