    One of my favorite ways to spend the morning – pottering around wet markets.

    Noryangjin is not a huge market. If you have time to spare, it’s a nice way to spend a couple of hours.

    This is a wet market, literally. If you decide to visit Noryangjin, do leave your favorite shoes behind.

    Navigating through rows of seafood (still can’t figure out most of it) was quite an experience.

    I even attempted to make small talk with ajumma in their fuchsia pink aprons with my three-word Korean vocabulary.

    Did I mention that even the ajumma here have such dewy skin. Hand me the BB cream, please!


    I passed by a small food stall catering to the market workers and stopped for a bite.

    Two elderly ladies came by to order breakfast. I smiled and offered makgeolli and they invited me to share their breakfast. I couldn’t make out what they were saying most of the time, and neither did they seem to understand what I was uttering.

    But it’s all fine. Language is no barrier when there’s food.
