After that, we came to our pensions. Our room was pretty clean, and we were satisfied. After that and eating lunch, we learned about some bugs which are born in the water and come out later. They focused on teaching us about mayflies and other fly types. We also tried catching some. We saw mayflies and moth types also. It was fun catching the bugs. I think today was, overall, pretty fun, and I am personally satisfied.

The trip started at around 8:30 when the bus departed from the CDS full of excited students. We arrived at the cave site around noon, where we ate lunch near a beautiful lake and mountains. Everyone prepared to enter the cave after changing into jumpsuits and special gear, and riding a boat to the cave entrance. We explored the cave and they learned a lot about how caves form over time, along with the different types of formations in caves. We also saw a lot of interesting things in the cave such as heating system with wood from the Joseon dynasty and scribbles of names on walls. It was very educational and fun!
Afterwards, we rode the bus back to where we would be staying and ate dinner. After dinner, we listened to a lecture about ecological systems and the bugs in the area, then got to see the bugs up close in a catch and release experience. We are all resting and hanging out together after today’s activities, and everyone seems very excited and happy to start off the rest of adventure Korea!
