The Shinsegae store is an upmarket chain store with shops all over South Korea.
Just because there can never be too many cats on the internet! :)
These cats were enjoying the sun and having fun (like it says on the sign!) as they relaxed on the rocks. We saw two cats and either one kitten twice (on different days) or possibly it was two kittens, but they were all ginger and white. As the cats were in Busan and the kitten(s) were in Seoul, I don't know whether this means that ginger cats are remarkably common in Korea or whether it was just a complete coincidence.
Down at the bottom of the picture you can see the statue of Princess Hwang-Ok who came across the sea from the country of Naranda to marry the King of Mugung. She was a human by day and a mermaid by night, but never really settled and often wept for her homeland.
And finally, a distant glimpse of some of the Five or Six Islands. As I explained before, the Five or Six Islands are so called because the number varies, depending on the height of the tide. They mark the entrance to Busan Harbour, South Korea.
