As the Yellow team were put through their paces down at the beach, the Blue, Red and Black teams took time to learn about other cultures at The National Museum, Seoul. The museum is exhibiting the world famous Inca exhibition and Peru took time to explain some of the artefacts to his competitors. “I really enjoy explaining part of Peruvian history to so many other cultures from around the world” he said.
Contestants also viewed historical Korean pieces, including swords, arrows and an ancient gold Buddha. It was explained to the young men that the Korean Buddha is the only Buddha that smiles. New Zealand remarked “I have been to museums all over the world and I find this really interesting. I could spend all day in here”.
After the museum the contestants hit the shops, first visiting Lotte, where they had lunch at a Japanese restaurant, then visiting Doota where they looked for souvenirs of Korea to take home with them.
