Yongyeon Pond (용연)

Yongyeon (Jeju Island, South Korea)

#Jeju #제주 #용연

This place on Jeju Island is supposed to be most beautiful (and crowded) at night, but I was there alone in the day. This is where the fresh water at the end of a mountain valley meets the salty sea water on the north side of Jeju. The name means “Dragon Pond” as the dragon in the nearby rock is said to have come to this pond to play. I don’t remember if I strolled on over to the pavilion.

Jeju is well known for its…

In fact, earlier this month it was announced that Kim Jung-Un is going to visit Jeju after 200 tonnes of Jeju tangerines were sent to North Korea.

Island life

Planes were constantly buzzing overhead on the island of Jeju. However, whenever I was ready to take a photo of them up close there were none to be found. Later in the day I was up the road a bit so they weren’t as close, but the symmetry of these posts made this shot difficult to pass up.

Pig parts in Jeju (South Korea)

I love bacon. I love a good pulled-pork sandwich. However, I don’t like to see where these items came from. I like to buy my bacon sliced and wrapped in a refrigerated section of a grocery store, not outside in a plastic basket (for who knows how long) on a hot and humid day with bugs swarming and smells so intense that your nostrils are singed. Marketing is a bit different depending on the culture I suppose.

Carp attack!

I saw Hiroshima Carp earlier on this trip, but these were the first carp I saw in Korea. As I lowered my camera down toward the water they got really frisky.
