On the day before I left, Mr Kim took me to the Boseong green tea plantation. It's one of the local area's "famous" places to visit. Most of the green tea from Korea comes from Boseong (I believe i heard the amount was around 80%) They say that the land and climate have the perfect conditions for growing green tea. The weather that day was pristinely perfect, sunny blue skies and warm but with a nice breeze.
afterwards we drove down to the ocean and ate some fresh caught octopus. Mr Kim new how much I had hoped to try live octopus and he got the owner to do it for . I was a little scared as i heard 6 ppl die a year from having a suction cup stick to their throats and I could see that happening to me, so I over-chewed everything. But I have to say, it did taste good.
