Octopus and clam in a Jeolla-do village
|Ohmynews has a nice story from a village near Yeosu, Southern Jeolla, where people are busy harvesting the sea and the seashores. The small octopus (nakchi, or nakcha in the local dialect) that is caught at night sells at a high price in the Yeosu fish market, and the clam (pajirak) collected from the shores is exported to Japan at a price 50% better than in Korea. |

The oldest man in the village aged 90 works with the others on the shore. When asked the secret of his long life, he tells: "I'm 90, and our granny is 81. Perhaps itäs because I've been eating the fresh food from the sea all my life. If you talk carelessly you only hurt other people, but when you eat together and share good food with others, that'll make you good."
What's this with the Korean characters on this page? Why don't they appear properly on the main page, but come out good on other archive pages of this blog? (I'm using Firefox.) For example when I go to the permanent link page of each entry, the hangul type appears as it should. Browser-related thing? Explorer shows also this main page properly, but Firefox doesn't.
Now the next day, the hangul font appears as it should. Perhaps the spirits of this blog were just upset for something. But they should have no reason because the hits have been lately up thanks to Oranckay, Marmot, Simon World and others.
