Asia Trip cont. South Korea

After two nights and three lovely days in Shanghai, China we boarded our cruise ship and headed toward South Korea. We had a relaxing day at sea before arriving in S. Korea's largest port and third largest city, Incheon. Seoul is about 90 miles north. 
Our excursion  was in and around the port of Incheon. First stop was a rather large fish market..
I don't think I have ever seen so much seafood
and it took me a minute or two to figure out what this was. I think it is a skate or stingray.
We also toured some old traditional homes,
where the doorways made me feel tall.
There were ladies there playing  Neolttwigi which resembles an American seesaw, but you stand instead of sit, and you try an launch the other person into the air. 
Just a little pond with small looking Lilly Pads.
After stopping at a Korean War Memorial Museum we arrived at an ultra modern area of the port where the views from the 33rd floor were amazing.
It appears I have been eating too much rice....which is probably stop back to China to tour Beijing.


  1. The city looks very modern as well as preserving the more traditional parts of the city. What a terrific trip you are experiencing.

  2. That view out over the city is incredible.

    1. Wm that isn’t even the city...Those are just buildings at the port!

  3. Super series of shots Janey.. your shot of the stingrays made me smile, they look a week bit surprised to be in this predicament 😀

  4. Strange looking fish and so nice photos. I am having a birthday this weekend, so have to bend over your mail later..

  5. Dearest Janey,
    Lovely cruise you took, so many new impressions for all to live through.
    Never been to South Korea, even after having worked along a colleague from Seoul, while living in Indonesia.
    We often went to a Korean restaurant and I love the food. Yes, seafood is plenty in Asia and I love it.
