Two items: beach & elderly

At the beach, so far this year, I’ve not seen one Korean woman wearing a swimsuit at the beach. This is different than in Busan where beginning July 1, it was ‘beach season’ and string bikinis were the norm. Here in Jeju, walking into the water with whatever you’re wearing is the norm.

The good thing about this is that it eliminates that whole “oh no, I forgot my swimsuit!” problem!


It wasn’t the same older lady that buttoned my friend’s blouse up just one higher…

but when I walked home from school, there was an older lady (ok older than me!) standing on her front porch one foot from the main walkway to the beach, bathing. naked.

It’s all ok with me, but it’s a little hard to figure out the rules! haha!
