Korean haenyo diver on beach

Jeju Island, where I lived in South Korea, was home to some of the last haenyo in the world. These women dive up to 65 feet, holding their breath for several minutes while they harvest abalone, urchin, and other creatures. They then sell them on the beach (see the table and stools?!). It’s a fascinating — and impressive — tradition.
