Wolmido-December 2010 –South Korea

I got to visit Wolmido. My knowledge of history is really bad. And to make matters worse, I never learned about Korean history in school. So you can say that I’m wrong if I am.

Wolmido was a battle ground for the Korean War.

Now, it’s like an amusement park.

I got there and got to see some older gentlemen fishing.

The way that fish was pulling in the water, I thought it would be something big.. But it was a small little fish.

Part of the road.

A guy drawing a little girl.

I thought this was pretty awesome. The stage has a oragami paper crane looking sculpture on it! I used to make them all the time, but mine would be soo ugly!

PINIMAGE

A Ferris Wheel. I’m deathly afraid to go on these things.

Now for some historic stuff. Old bullet casing boxes.

This is the outer wall to a resturaunt that sells noodles.

So this thing was pretty hilarious. A guy operates this spinning thing and gets a close look at each person and makes fun of them on a microphone. and trying to make people lose their grip. I won’t explain it very well, let’s just say you had to be there. I stood there watching it for about a good 30 mins.. with 3 different sets of riders.

So this girl, he made fun of for wearing a skirt. He found out she wasn’t a korean citizen, so he didnt feel bad and  let everyone see up her skirt.

PINIMAGE

This lady was hilarious. She made her husband hang onto her the whole time so that she wouldn’t lose her grip.

PINIMAGE

Here’s a final picture I will leave for you. I think these people are riding the fairy to go to another island.

PINIMAGE

It reminds me kind of like Ellis Island (I haven’t ever been there. But knowing thats it’s where a lot of people landed when coming to the states. My knowledge definitely proves to you that I’m totally American because I don’t have any Korean references.

Anyways, I’m going to try to update more and not be so lazy!
