What is it with the Jin-Jews?? Seriously! A girl is trying to behave herself.. and then they come along and, BAM!
So on Friday night I kind of sort of.. mm.. went a wee crazy! I tried to wake-up early enough to get my butt on an 8AM bus.. but I sort of ended up on the 12:20 bus. I was supposed to be meeting Christina and other Jin-Jews at the Yeosu World Expo at 1PM. Yeosu is 3.5 hours away from Jeonju.. fail! I slept the entire way there.. by the time I arrived (around 4PM) Christina said that the Expo sucked, and it was rainy, and the lines were crazy, so we were just going to head to Namhae Island and meet everyone else there once I found them. The Expo is HUGE.. so it took me a little while to find them.. in the end there were 7 of us in a clown car headed to Namhae Island. Did I mention that the car is being driven by a Scottish guy who I used to loathe (and now love), however he sounds just like Shrek and how can you hate Shrek?! .. so I was just absolutely praying we'd get there alive!
We made it.. found Kevin and the gang.. ate.. played card games.. got sloshed.. and headed to the beach for some fireworks. Well.. the fireworks never happened because we got kicked off the beach. The guys had changed into their swim trunks.. but the two girls who wanted to go hadn't, they decided to just get buck naked and jump in.. haaa.... I think they'll double think that decision from now on, because all of a sudden a bright spotlight shines out into the ocean...shining... shining... and then a coast guard guy comes out and tells us in Korean that they need to get out of the water. The guys got out of the water, but the girls were like 'NO WAY!'.. stop shining your light.. stop looking at us and we'll get out. I'm pretty sure the guard had zero clue what was happening.. we ended up having to shield the girls with huge umbrellas while everyone found their clothes.. HAAA. I still think it's so funny, and I'm so happy that I was still recovering from being sick and didn't go! Point for me.
Later, I learned some new games. We headed to a food tent and vegged out... then headed to the NORAEBANG... most likely the last noraebang of my Korean career. Sad face! We had so much fun, jammed, laughed, chatted.. Kev and I got all emotional because all of his besties are leaving in Jinju (guys that have lived there for yeaars), I'm about to leave, life just isn't fair!
The next morning, the token Irishman bought fireworks at 9AM and started setting them off in our pension's courtyard.. waking up ALL of the Koreans in the surrounding pension rooms. Luckily I got to play with the sparklers that came in the package.. yeehaw.. so I wasn't angry for being woken up by them!
We left fairly early, going down to the beach to check it out in the RAIN.. since it's rain season it rained the entire time we were there!
We left fairly early.. around noon.. and what does the Irishman do?! He buys fireworks for our ride home. And I mean that literally. Once those were used up, he bought more at our pee-break! Never in my life. It was amazing. Yet kids I don't recommend you do this at home, which is why I am NOT posting the video.. even though it makes me laugh every time!
Geeze Jinju! Such bad influences :).
