Friday Night in Jeju

Living in Jeju, an island in South Korea, means that my Friday nights are much different than when I lived in big cities with tons of nightlife. Where I live is a bit (okay…a lot) more low key; add Covid in the mix, and Fridays are a lot quieter now.

After a busy week at work (which ones aren’t these days?), I was ready for some down time. I picked up some fresh tulips at the local supermarket first, and after deciding that cooking wasn’t in the cards tonight, I headed to Gla Gla to pick up a take-away Poke bowl. While I waited on my order, I snapped a few pics of the surrounding area. This street is full of restaurants, cafes, and shops where you can buy fresh fish, since it’s located on a port.

Back at home, I settled in for a night of catching up on my shows. Grey’s Anatomy and Station 19 are back…after a very long hiatus…so I watched them both. I won’t reveal any spoilers, but if you are religious viewers like me, you are in for an emotional ride!

    Your sharing of photos of a culture that is not familiar to me is so exciting, you have a cozy spot to enjoy living! There’s something about those live staring fish that would make eating them difficult.

      Yeah, it’s definitely different…and much smaller! I had a vegetarian Poke bowl, which has rice on the bottom, and it’s topped with cabbage, lettuce, seaweed, avocado, radish, corn, sesame seeds, and a sweet soy sauce dressing. Delish!

    This sounds like quite a relaxing Friday night! Your pictures make me want to go outside and explore again. When the pneumonia is gone! Meantime, I made my husband and son get their bikes and explore the world on my behalf. 😀
