17) A New Adventure

Friday: I went out for ramen with Catrina and Daniel.
Saturday: In the morning I made plans to hike with a co-teacher. The weekend before it rained so we canceled. We hiked from 10-12:30. Luckily, the trail was near the ferry terminal. At 1:00 I met five friends to take a ferry to Chuja Island where one of our friends lives and teaches English.
Sunday: We stayed the night on Chuja and headed home in the morning. After the two hour ferry ride home, Jeanette, Leah, Andre and I went to a figure drawing meet up that Andre’s wife put together. I volunteered to model as the second of three models.
Monday: After work I ate soup and cake with Jeanette and Michelle (not pictured). We played card games after and relaxed.

Friday:
I ordered cheese ramen and was severely disappointed although not incredibly surprised.

We hiked to the top of the first mountain to see the view of our city.

We hiked around a second mountain where we found Jeju style tombs; volcanic rock is used to form a square around the buried body and sometimes more rocks are used in a pile to mark the place. This does not happen on the mainland.

This beach is famous for its “black” sand. Old people bury themselves in it to help with joint pain in the summer.

Away we went on the ferry! You can see the mountains we hiked.

We arrived safe and sound. Chuja is famous for its fishing but is an incredibly small island.

We built a fire on the edge of a cliff towards the end of the night. Ben is the friend we were visiting.

The best part of the ferry is all the laying room. There are also regular seats but after a late night most of us chose to lay.

In Korea, tomatoes are a fruit so sometimes you’ll have it with dessert. I’ve had fruit salad with tomato, Jeanette has had ice cream with a tomato on top, and now we’ve had this cake with tomato on top.
