Money, money, money (by Abba)

30/52 for the group 52 of 2012

This week's theme: Image Based On A Song Or Book Title, Lyric, Quote, Idiom, Or Figure Of Speech

I'm sure you all know the song. The chorus goes:

Money, money, money
Must be funny
In the rich man's world
Money, money, money
Always sunny
In the rich man's world
All the things I could do
If I had a little money

As you know, we've just come back from a trip to South Korea and I therefore have some Korean money left. That is a pile of 10000 won notes. Unfortunately, 10000 won is only worth about £5.60 ($8.80), so we aren't as rich as it might appear!

Once more with pictures -- Day 8 continued (Haeundae Beach)

After visiting the temple and having lunch, we were taken to Haeundae Beach. First we visited the aquarium, but I didn't even try to take photos in such dim lighting. However, after we had seen enough fish, G and I went for a walk along the beach and round part of the headland, which actually used to be an island, but it sort of silted up, apparently, and became a small peninsular.

This was the sort of development that was happening just inland.

But if you look along the beach, it looks very attractive. The guide told us that it's not a natural beach though. The sand is brought in for each season.
