After our stay at the Hi Class Pension in Namhae, we had breakfast at the Hilton and then set out for some sightseeing. If we hadn’t been going to the Hilton, we might have never noticed the art village, but we are so glad that we stumbled across it.
Namhae Island is a really rural area full of rice and garlic fields. As we pulled out of the Hilton, we spotted a mural of The Simpsons.
I decided I wanted to explore further so we drove up the narrow street through the village.
The families in this village are very clearly farmers.
It was interesting to see the farming culture so alive in their art.
It was such a nice little drive and I absolutely loved seeing all of the beautiful murals.
I wish that I could speak Korean because I want so badly to know the story behind the murals, but I’m afraid it will forever remain a mystery to me.
