korea Free and easy (Jeju) : Haeyon, Sea woman


Cute little boy while we watching performance

getting ready and setting off

haenyo, literally meaning "sea women", are female divers in the Korean province of Jeju.

We managed to catch them in action after conquering sunrise peak. 
This was just at the foot of sunrise peak.
Is quite sad to see eldery dive into the water in this cold weather, around 12 degree.
They did a performance including some singing and dancing. 
Then they went into water and one of them managed to catch an octopus.
She offered it the audience but all of us were too scared to hold it.
