[BUSAN] AN OLD TRADITION, A NEW YEAR

It is a Korean tradition to watch the sunrise on the first day of the new year. Haeundae Beach, the beach we live on, is one of the most popular beaches in South Korea so thousands of people flock here every January 1. It was a very chilly and overcast morning so we enjoyed watching the sunrise from the comfort of our home. Although normally the sun rises around 7:25am this particular morning the sun didn't make its appearance until after 8:00am. It was amazing to see so many people gather at the beach to welcome the first sunrise of 2012. I'm so happy our family was able to participate in this wonderful tradition.
