Well, not a good view of Seorak Mt, but that's it off in the background. Taken from a famous lighthouse in the port of Sokcho. Interestingly enough, it's an international port. From there it's possible to take a boat to Russia, and then board the Trans-Siberian Express to Turkey. My co-teacher who I was with that day had made that trip several years earlier. Waaay cooler than me.
The next morning my friend Jeff, the other dude from the earlier posts, a Korean friend we met named Chul-Woo and myself went out to the countryside to attend the annual Bullfighting Festival. It's the largest in Korea and the stadium was the biggest building for miles.
