I went to Taejongdae and took a ferry ride around the island…

I went to Taejongdae and took a ferry ride around the island with two Korean friends. They looked confused when I started singing The Lonely Island’s I’m On A Boat. “Like Kevin Garnett, anything is possible” did not translate over very well. 


I went to Taejongdae and took a ferry ride around the island with two Korean friends. They looked confused when I started singing The Lonely Island’s I’m On A Boat. “Like Kevin Garnett, anything is possible” did not translate over very well. 

We fed the seagulls with shrimp chips. My Korean friends laughed because I would eat a chip for every few chips I would throw at the birds. I was hungry and I don’t think the chips are good for the birds.

We got off the boat at one point and climbed up a long set of uneven stairs set on a rocky mountainside. Maneuvering the steps was a little tricky with heels, especially with the ajummas yelling at me to eat/buy their seafood that was crawling around in dinky buckets of water. As I walked by, a fish jumped out by my feet, and an ajumma quickly plopped it back in the bucket. She didn’t even flinch. I, of course, gasped in surprise. The ocean is not always my friend.
