KyungOk: Visual Memory Continue

Some pictures of School children taken in Jeju Island. Jeju Island is considered 'The Hawaii" of Korea. It is a Volcanic Island where many Koreans from the mainland go for their Honeymoon. There are many historical sites, and landmarks, such as the famous dragon head. Jeju Island is also the home to the famous and dying art of the Henu Women. We were told, that the younger generations do not want to follow the hard and dangerous teachings and life styles of these Divers, therefor, they leave their Island to go to Seoul for Job Opportunities.

The picture below are some school boys playing a traditional 'boy' game-as we are told by our Tour guide.
