The city, not the airport. I toured the Yeonan Pier fish market, which is similar in style to the Noryangjin fish market in Seoul (although I think Yeanan was bigger). I saw almost every kind of fish and sea creature on display. And afterwards enjoyed a set menu of fresh (raw) seafood at a nearby restaurant. I'm still a beginner at eating sushi, and here's my opinion as of today. I like the tuna sushi the best. The fish meat itself tastes better to me, and I prefer the serving style, that is, the various items you eat with the tuna. Next in line I like the fish sushi. You eat it with just wasabi / soy sauce, but the taste and texture is really good. Finally on my list is the various sea (shell) creatures. These aren't my favorites (that's why their last on the list). However, a few of them are really good. The sea cucumber was delicious, as was the abalone. And I'm slowly developing a taste for oysters - I could imagine eating a huge plate of them.

After stuffing myself with sushi, I visited the statue honoring General George MacArthur. I couldn't help but think, as I overlooked the bright Incheon harbor bustling with activity, that this is what he fought for. I think it is a perfect spot for his statue. Godspeed General.

Did you see any anemone? I think that's what I ate in China, but couldn't get a better translation that 'sea fish.'
