EA08 Day 03- Sunburns and Surprise Meats...

Sunday I traveled from Pohang to Gimhae Airport via Gyeongju to catch my flight to Jeju City. It was the easiest time I have ever had with a flight. After I got off the bus it was no more than 20 minutes until I was on my flight. This was helped along by the nice woman at the counter getting me on an early flight at her own suggestion and much to my surprize. Security took only 2 minutes. The plane was strikingly empty with what seemed like only 15 passengers.

I am not sure if it is a widely publicized fact that, despite the utility gained, I do not like flying all that much. The thunderstorms that I knew would be over Jeju-do did nothing to aleviate that dislike as we had "issues" landing and had to abort the first landing after touching the first two landing gears to the ground. Although my nerves were frayed I highly recommend Korean Air.

What have the first three days of EPIK Adventure 08 consisted of? On day one I arrived in Jeju-shi (Jeju City) in the evening. After checking in my motel and finding that both the son and daughter of the owner where quite capable in English and quite eager to know more about the foriegner staying in their motel and helping him find the various restaurants from his guidebook, it was already quite late.

I did have time to meander on down to the City Hall area and checkout a Mexican Restaurant that Lonely Planet claims has a Korean Chef that studied in Mexico City. I have been without Mexican food for an entire year and my only attempt to find some in Itaewon ended Disagreeably. El Paso, as the restraunt in Jeju is known. Was the best Mexican food in Korea to date. However there was enough Korean influence that is most likely inspired by the high culinary arts and food "fusion", that I was disappointed by expectations. The authentic corn tortillas and chips are nothing to shake a stick at.

On Day Two I quickly hopped a bus to Hamdoek beach after conferencing with the motel staff. The quick bus ride let me off at a agreeable beach with white sands and black lava rocks dividing the beach into sections. after scouting out a section with few people I was greeted with a downpour that I greeted once my gear was wrapped in my poncho and minded by pavillion staff member. I got deep in conversation with a nice government official that had studied in Iowa and been to Tucson and Chicago.

Much to my disgusted the nearly ever present cloud cover and the distraction of conversation lulled me into forgetting my sunscreen and into a oppressive sunburn. Despite this I found a minute section of the beach that was fenced off by lava rocks and completely devoid of other people despite being literally in the middle of the beach area. Here I was able to enjoy an extraordinary peace and quiet and catch a nap with a belly full of Hwe Mul (a sort of sushi, rice, and vegetable mix).

I took the opportunity of my sunburn to sleep in and meander through Jeju City's none beach activities. I need this sunburn healed by the 14th as I will be SCUBA diving in Ilchulbong. I also wanted to stop by the PC bang to share this picture of Korean traditional Surprise Meat...
