Because Korea is a peninsula, for many of us Fulbright grantees water is an important part of our local geography. And if you find yourself in a costal town like Mokpo where I live, you will probably hear a lot about how South Korea is #1 in the world in shipbuilding, and enjoy a constant variety of seafood dishes like 홍어 (hongeo, fermented skate) or 산낙지 (sannakji, live octupus). From the Han River in Seoul to the Nakdong River running from Daegu to Busan, lakes and seas and streams are fundamental parts of the places we live. I hope you enjoy these photos of the waters that surround us.
