Time moves so quickly here! I’ve already got my third week under my belt. fourth, if you count training in Seoul. This weekend I went to the beach, contributed to a pot luck yacht party, ate some super fresh fish at Jigalchi fish market, and went to the beach again, to see some stormy weather. Time for pictures!

My first encounter at Jigalchi, a crab bent on escape!
At Jigalchi fish market! This crab was about to escape!
this lady ripped off the head of a live octopus while holding an entirely everyday conversation with a customer. She then bagged it, and gave it the guy with muscles still twitching. Woah!
Not sure what these were..

more fish selling
I ate some of these once! Like oysters, but a lot in one shell-type thing

We wanted to try some of the sea’s glorious bounties, so we went upstairs to the restaurant section, where we haggled with a lady to buy some “bastard fish.” She seated us by the window, and then went down to haggle some more with the fish sellers to buy our fish! It was grilled, and really tasty.
fish we ordered in the upstairs part of the market! Before consumption
After consumption. Devouring complete!

Goodbye fish market!
in the outdoor mall nearby, after ice cream, we met a very photogenic golden man.
The next day was a bit rainy, with some killer winds, but the beach was still gorgeous.
stormy seas ahead back in Haeundae
a stormy beach is still a beautiful beach to me

I predict that next weekend I will visit the beach again, haha. Talk to you then!
