Back in Incheon after a long bus ride from Busan, we caught ourselves in the middle of a busy sidewalk, with thousands of university studs racing their way into the open grounds of Inha University.
Remember I told you we had to get up real early to make it to our call-time, and performed under the noon sun for 40 minutes? Well, this is it.
Third time’s a charm? I only say so because I failed to achieve my goal of taking higher quality photos on my first 2 visits to Korea. Now I guess I finally got it right on the 3rd time!
Right after wandering around Gwanghwamun Plaza and Gyeongbokgung Palace, we then made our way to lunch at Namdaemun Market. Unfortunately, I don’t have any shots of that because our Korean companions warned us of snatchers. Oh well, better safe than sorry. We instead, just made the most out of our very limited time for shopping.
From far away, you can smell this street food cooking. It’s unmistakably the Beondegi. Beondegi is a very popular street food in Korea. The brown one on the right corner of the photo, and yes, they’re boiled silkworm larvae!
Another kind of food I tried in Korea was the Soondae.
I tried another kind of street food which I always see on stands everywhere. It then had become one of my favorite Korean street food. The Odeng (fish cake).
I’m the type of person who doesn’t fear trying out food that’s alien to me, especially the quirky kinds.
