Wednesday 11/11/15 (Korean time) Woke up at 6:30 AM Korean time (4:30 PM Tuesday 11/10/15 US-EST time)
Started the day with some delicious breakfast. Ready to do some more sightseeing!
We first headed to a small town where my mom grew up. Walked through a small, local market and bought some 호떡 (rice cake with walnuts, sugar inside) and 순대 (similar to sausages. Stuffed pig intestines with sweet rice and basic vegetable).
We later visited my grandfather’s grave. In Korea, we bury the dead surrounded by family members. My grandfather’s family own a small part of a mountain where the highest point is a burial site for my great-great-grandfather and great-great-grandmother, and so on down the family tree as you descend the mountain.
After trekking down the mountain, we stopped by the Independence Hall of Korea! It was so cool. Here are some pictures:
