The second night, we stayed at the Nagan Folk Village located in South Jeolla Province. Many of the houses are subsidized by the government so that the remaining families, who have been living there for centuries, will not build any sort of modern architecture. Surrounding the village is the Fortress Wall, which we walked in the morning. It was very neat.

Waiting in line to get tickets More waiting in line Waiting in line for the aquarium Napping The Expo itself The Expo The World Expo at night

Here’s the Expo. I didn’t take as many pictures because I didn’t think there was anything noteworthy. Everyone was mostly tired from the bus ride/climb at sunrise. So, it was weird and hectic. Eight different pavilions had been built for the Expo and the theme was ‘humans’ relationship with the ocean.’ Apparently some noteworthy K-pop stars were there entertaining, but most of us couldn’t have cared any less. So first, we went to the aquarium. After the aquarium, we ate lunch and were so tired that we took a rest on the lawn with the many Koreans sleeping as well. This was so weird because although many Koreans were taking naps on the lawn as well, once we woke up we noticed all the older Korean men staring and making noises at us. So strange. So, so strange and gross. Afterwards, we mainly walked around the International Pavilion.  This pavilion consisted of countries from all over the world that were allowed to host their own respective exhibition, which included pictures, videos, interactive things. It was weird overall. However, our favorite countries were Singapore, Qatar, and Russia. Here are some pictures.

Here are pictures from the weekend I went to the World Expo, which was held in Yeosu, Korea. It was hectic, but wonderful. We took an overnight bus to the south of the country. At around 5 in the morning, we went to the Hyang Il Am Temple to see the sunrise. The temple is located on a cliff. I believe the name is Cliff Sunrise, actually. Then, we drove to the World Expo. We spent the whole day at the Expo until 10 at night, where we then drove to the Nagan Folk Village. From there, we went to the tea fields. It was a hectic and wonderful weekend. Here are the pictures.
