Here’s Day 2 of Martina’s Trip to Jeju Island. The day started off with a hike up a mountain (is it just us, or do all Public School trips involve climbing a mountain of some sort?) on a very cold day, then led into a trip to the Teddy Bear Museum. Yes. There is a Museum just for teddy bears. You’d be surprised how many different kinds of teddy bears you could find there! Afterwards, they went to a Buddhist temple and, finally, went to Seogwipo Stadium, which held the Fifa 2002 World Cup and – more importantly – is where the scene is from in Boys Before Flowers when the four boys play soccer. After all was said and done, they went on this mysterious road that – if you turned off the engine of your car – would pull it uphill!
On a side note, we just got back from an almost-three-week vacation in Canada. We documented a few things, and plan on making some movies that will especially be useful to those of you coming to live in Korea anytime soon. So stay tuned! And – FINALLY – the Eatyourkimchi feed on iTunes is finally 100% functional! You can now watch every last one of our videos on your iPod! Huzzah!
