Living in Wonju South Korea, These Many Long Years

Living in Wonju South Korea, These Many Long Years: Version 2.0!

Monday, August 5, 2013


Today I decided that it would be a fantastic idea to reschedule my one meeting, bundle the fam into the van, and head for the beach.

We spent the day in Gangneung, getting cooked in the sun and replenishing the sand in the van.  This was overdue, as we haven't been to the beach in some time. Luckily, I recently cleaned the van, so now we can enjoy the beach again and again whenever we see the silica crystals scattered throughout the interior of our main mode of transportation.

Highlights today included several nice bikini girls (no photos allowed for waegs!), watching three guys get rescued by speedboat when their parasail rental proved a bit more unwieldy than anticipated, and a gaggle of old guys setting up next to us who slogged back the soju while swimming in bathing suits that were essential see through when wet.  This last was particularly amusing as we'd initially chosen a side beach since it was supposedly more kid friendly.  Don't know about the girls, but I know I've been scarred.

Just finished our obligatory raw fish dinner.  We had red snapper.  It was delicious.

At a trendy cafe now.  Had a Guatemalan and a Kenyan. Suppose I should collect the fam and head back to the Wonj.  Several ice cold cans of Max await.

The drive to the Wonj was fine, some rain.  As we were leaving, many smoking hot 20 somethings kept emerging from hotel rooms wearing slinky tight numbers.  From past experience, Gyeongpo beach can get pretty hot in summer, with every hotel having a back patio party.  Hopping from party to party, room to room was a great time years back, when a crew including dirty bird, the architect, the hand actor and I spent 3 inglorious days rutting out all kinds of fine ladies.  Good times, good times.

Decided to go with the rice wine before the Max.  There is work to be done tomorrow, but as long as I stick to a single bottle all should be well.
