Today let me take you with me to Cheonjiyeon falls.
We had a seafood lunch at Sinwoosung.
This is a small and nice village that re-animates the life of the Koreans in the past. There are many things to see and learn to know how the people lived in the old days. I was hoping to get a picture of the natives in their national clothes but I was not able to see any of them. According to our guide, the natives are quite camera-shy and they would rather stay inside their homes and prepare meals for their families.
Jeju is famous for the unique fences around the village houses. Reaching up to just around knee height, the fences were probably more as an obstacle to prevent farm animals from wandering into the garden. However, the fences have another socio-cultural role. It is visibly seen every time you see a home anywhere in the island. These bars act as a sign of the owner's whereabouts. Usually there will be 3 bars up. One bar up means " back in a while ". Two bars up mean " out for the whole day ". Three bars up mean " gone traveling ".
In the photo above you will see there are 3 bars at the gate.... When all 3 bars are put down, it indicates that the home owner is at home and you are welcome.
