The tangerine was introduced to Jeju Island of Korea during the Japanese occupation and grows well, together with native Jeju citrus fruit varieties and hybrids, in the rich volcanic soil. We took a field trip with our English students to this small farm. Just as we arrived, a light snow started falling and the orange fruit together with the green trees and black volcanic rock walls made for a striking visual effect.

Opened the link to your blog, because I liked the name! And coincidentally the first story I read here is about Jeju Island, something I did in another blog just a while back 🙂
Anyway my wishes for a great travel time in Korea! I wonder if things are difficult due to the tension between the North and the South.
Hi Sid, Thanks for stopping by to comment and for your good wishes. There really does’t seem to be any tension here whatsoever. I expected there might be. But in February, I will travel more throughout the country and I’ll see if I notice any difference.
Nice pics! I will be going Jeju next week. Can you share the address of the tangerine farm that you went to? Would like to go as well.
Thanks! Great travelling!!
I also opened the link to your blog, researching more about the following email I received from Fellowship of Reconciliation(FOR)
Are you familiar with this story?
I prefer to get other perspectives before writing letters of concern. Do you have more insight?
