On Wednesday after work David and I popped into Geumcheon. We decided to go to a cafe called Can More. We have been meaning to go to it for a while. It was really cute. There were chairs hanging from the sealing that rocked! Everything in the place was frilly, pretty and really colourful. The food was amazing too.

Anyways, on Sunday after breakfast David and I headed to a ceramic museum. Here we made pottery. We both made a bowl. David’s is much nicer! We will not be able to see our finished product until a month. This is because our bowls haven't been fired yet. When they have been they will be posted to us. I hope they make it. After our craft day we went back to the beach for a few hours. In the evening we headed back to Daepo harbor and ate at a restaurant. Then we went into the city for more junk shop exploring.
On Monday after breakfast we headed straight to the beach. David and I bought Jeju ladies goggles. These were a lot of fun and very stylish! Even thought there was a storm we still had a good swim. After our swim in the ocean it was time to stay good bye. We headed towards Yanggu to stay near the 4th tunnel.
We went through a few funky towns, Inje, Hae-an, Yanggu. The scenery was stunning. Another reason why I love Gangwon-do. After checking into our Hotel we went to an Island then into town for dinner.
Tuesday we headed straight to the DMZ. I think I enjoyed visiting the 4th tunnel the most. This is because all of the staff was extremely helpful and friendly. In general I felt the most comfortable here.
After the DMZ David and I headed back to the town of Yanggu and mooched around the shops and ate dinner. On our way back we went to Lake Paro, which was breath taking. After this we went through a restricted area and came across 15-20 tanks. This was an interesting surprise.

On Sunday we had a Teacher Talent Show at work. I and a few other girls decided to enter ourselves. We performed a dance to a Korean song called 'Magic'. We practiced for a few weeks and I thought I had the dance moves covered but I chocked on the night and slipped up a few times! Oh well, I had so much fun doing it. Even though it was nerve racking it was worth it!

Last week David and I had a one day weekend...boooooooooo! But we have a four day weekend soon, so it's okay! On this day we completed numerous jobs that we have been meaning to do for a while. All the boring stuff we have to do before we leave :( David and I also went to Musan, a little town close by. We went to home plus (Tesco) and mooched around some local shops and markets . I bought lots of cute Korean stationary crap. Such as comics, cartoon stickers, stamps, geisha greeting cards, key-rings, robot hooks etc. Like I said general useless crap (pretty crap!) Nothing about the day was particularly special but I began to realise how much I will miss Korea and it's random quirkiness. Seven weeks left!!!!
