Incheon’s Weird Red Shores
I was surprised to discover the weird red moss/sand stuff lining the shore of Incheon. In some places, it looked like a red plain.
The Ringing Bell
This is one of the bells at Japan’s Kamakura Shrines. It sits at the top of a mountain, and originally was run to denote important news/times. Now, they still ring them on News Years Eve if I understand correctly. They are beautiful works of art!
Further good news: I climbed a butt-load of stairs to see this bell, and I was delighted to find out that it also gave me a great view of the area. Plus, I know I lost some weight. 🙂
