Korea Diary | Field Trip to Jeju (Day 3)
Everyone was starving by the time we landed in Jeju. Luckily lunch was the first thing on our itineraries. I think we had kimchi stew (김치찌개 kimchi jjigae) with pork for our meal. Korean's have an interesting idea where they beat (hot weather) heat with heat. I wasn't too sure about the idea then and sweating during the meal isn't my cup of tea. But I guess that's the point? To produce sweat as a natural way to cool the body off.
OSULLOC Tea Museum (오설록티뮤지엄)

For those that will also be visiting Seoul or probably any other major city in Korea, don't fret! OSULLOC has cafes and shops as well. While the selection isn't as vast, it might not be worth the wait to stand on line in the Jeju museum. Take your time to wonder their museum (inside and out) instead, ENJOY! I wish we were able to spend some more time here since there seemed to be other areas of the museum which I didn't get to see.

I ended up with different person as a roommate due to the way YISS buddied everyone up. Since we were only sleeping at the hotel for a couple of nights it wasn't all too bad. Even though she partied with her friends, I usually slept late enough to not be bothered. It was nice to have the room to myself for a while too. I am not sure if I will ever be able to stay in such a nice hotel in the future but it has set a new standard for me.
Tip for future YISS attendees: If you are planning to attend the field-trip, have a separate suitcase ready (whether carry-on or check-in). You will be able to leave the rest of your bigger luggages at Yonsei University for the few days that you are away. A carry-on was enough for me because I ended up not buying much or anything big from Jeju.
