Korea Part III

Hello everyone. How was your weekend? We had another great concert at JOY. Thank you for coming and being a wonderful audience again! Wasn’t Omachiman funny?!
This will be my final blog entry with pictures from Korea. I’m sorry that it took so long to put all the pictures on the blog. The pictures that I will show you now are from the second half of our vacation in Korea. After 6 nights in Seoul, we took a 4-hour bus ride to the east coast of Korea. We stayed in Sokcho, a small city of 80,000 people, for two nights. We went to the beach and went swimming for a short time. Here is a funny picture I took on the beach in Sokcho:

After Sokcho, we took a 6-hour bus ride to Gyeongju. This was the ancient capital of the Silla Kingdom. It’s a beautiful city. I think it’s like the Kyoto of Korea. There are many old temples, shrines, and tombs (large graves) of many important people.
Here is a picture of some large burial mounds. The VIP (Very Important Person) being buried was placed in a wooden coffin with many treasures and then covered with A LOT of dirt.

After two nights in Gyeongju, we took a bus to Pusan. It only took one hour. Unfortunately, we only had one night in Pusan. We went to the Jagalchi market, Korea’s largest fish market:

Then we ate great sashimi:

After we ate dinner, we went to the aquarium. Our favorite animal was this seal:

Well, that’s all. I hope you enjoyed my pictures, and remember to check Kendra’s blog for more pictures from our trip. Once again, if you have any questions about the pictures or our vacation, please ask us.
Also, I want to remind you that registration for next semester at JOY starts today, Monday, August 31st. Don’t forget to sign up. Remember, if you sign up before September 11th, you get a JOY coupon for ¥500. I’m really looking forward to next semester. Have a great week.

    I enjoyed the photo. A photo of a savory dish and beautiful scenery were wonderful.
    However, Orin and Kendra who was standing on the North Korea side was especially impressive. It is a strained face, isn’t it?

    Thanks for the comment, Yumiko.
    I think you’re right about the strained faces. Standing in North Korea definitely did not make us feel like smiling!!
