We took a trip on a coach yesterday with lots of the new staff. It took us to the O’Sulloc tea museum (which is a subject for another day) and to Jusangjeolli, on the south coast of the island. Jusangjeolli is an area of hexagonal basalt columns, formed when molten lava met the sea. There’s a walkway that allows all the tourists to look down at the sea as the waves break over the rocks.
Tourism is the most important source of income on Jeju, but agriculture is also important. One of the main products of the island is citrus fruits, and there were half a dozen ladies selling tangerines as we left the coach. They are delicious, so we bought a bagful.
There’s no rice grown on the island, apparently, because the topsoil is too thin.
