South Korea Vacation Part 21 - Busan, South Korea

We happened upon this burial site during our visit in Busan. Our friend, Hannah, said it was the site of a famous cult leader.
                                                                  This is his church.
                                         When you see this, you know galbi is coming soon.
This restaurant also had a charging station for your smart phone. I had never seen anything like this in the states but I though it was a great idea.
This photo is just another view of the love motel we stayed in. The covered car port is always a big clue that it's a love motel.
                                                           A delicious breakfast with Hellena.
This corn was very similar to our Mexican corn. I was a little scared because I find Korean corn impossible to eat but this corn was very similar to our sweet corn.
     I found this bathroom sign in the same restaurant hilarious and no, I didn't find a squat toilet.
                                                      Busan has a beautiful coastline.
These tiny islands had fisherman on them with boats going from island to island picking up and dropping off.
                                                     This guy was on one of the islands.
                                         We found families picnicking on the rocks.
                                         Some of the freshest seafood can be found in Busan.


                                  I would have loved to see what kind of fish these people caught.
                                                                 Rocketman in action.
     We even saw a kitty. The next place we visited, we ran into a lot of kitties. More in the next post.

South Korea Vacation Part 20 - Busan, South Korea - Gamcheon Culture Village Part Three

As we were making our way out of the village, I stopped and noticed this poor puppy on a short lease. I have seen it countless times in Korea but it still upsets me to see it. We heard a little child crying but since we were in a residential area also, I didn't give it much thought. But Hannah insisted that it was not a child upset at his mom but the cry of a child who was scared. This is one of the things that amaze me about Korea, most Koreans have this sort of sense where they look at your body language or speech and can tell things about you like Hannah did with this little child.
She went off and sure enough came back with a little, very scared boy. He had lost his mother somewhere in the village. He could not stop sobbing and shaking. He was so very scared. We told him we would find his momma.
The first thing I thought of was to call the police. No one came running looking for a child and he didn't remember where his mother was when he became lost. Hannah got onto the phone to call the police.
 It seemed like forever but it was only about 10-15 minutes when the father came frantically running to us. It was his daddy.
He was so happy to find him. Mommy was still shopping I guess but all ended well. The father kept telling us thank you both in English and in Korean. It was wonderful to see them reunited.

South Korea Vacation Part 19 - Busan, South Korea - Gamcheon Culture Village Part Two

                                                These photos were all taken by Rocketman.
                                    Hellena with one of her twins. It was a beautiful day!
Rocketman has a panoramic view on his new camera and I found the photos to be amazing that he took in this mode. I can't do that with my point and shoot but that's okay and why I'm so glad he loves photography.

                               This fish mural was huge and lots took advantage of the photo op.

                                                 This is one of the beautiful views we saw.
                                                                 We even found a hanji shop.


                                        Rocketman's camera took some beautiful photos.
The next post will be the last from Gamcheon Culture Village and involves a dog and a little lost boy. Stay tuned.
