West goes East: The lives and adventures of a Californian couple living in Seoul

Wednesday, July 11, 2007

We took a ferry to an island about an hour from Okinawa called Ie island. We all rented bikes and explored the beaches, a small mountain peak, and rode down an abandoned air strip from WWII. Ie Island is where the famous war reporter Ernie Pyle died. Being on the island was like stepping back in time. The people are mostly farmers and there were only a few other Japanese tourists on mopeds that we saw over and over again since the island is so small.
