Gyeongju

So as a teacher we have to go on field trips like when we were kids, last week this particular field trip was to a far away city called Gyeongju and it took about 6hours to get there, lots of bathroom breaks and we stopped at a famous steel mill named Pasco. We got to briefly walk through the factory to see how the steel is processed, it was HUGE and very HOT. Wouldn’t want to fall into that pit(sorry no pics were allowed)

We made our way to the city and I was very disappointed, first of all I didn’t want to go because 3days+a bus+6hours travelling time+kids=i’m about to kill somebody!! But before I went all I kept hearing was how beautiful this city was and my Korean freinds kept raving how nice it is, I was expecting it to be paradise the way they were describing it, well paradise it wasnt.

here were the highlights:

*acting like a kid again

*drinking sacred water

*hiking

*seeing the Seokguram grotto(no pics allowed though)

*chillin with some of the kids

Lunch break

Second stop King Mumu’s Grave site

King mumus grave

 It was said he wanted to be buried at this location in the water so that he can come back as a dragon to protect Korea from Japan. Pretty gangsta’

Hiding their face is to look cute and innocent.
