Korean Bell of Friendship

Hooray! It’s been a while since I crossed something off my LA Bucket List but here we go!

Located in San Pedro, this bell probably has one of the nicest views. It’s breathtaking, and a little nostalgic. For a second I forgot where I was and felt like I was in San Diego. There are times, when I miss San Diego (friends, family, always seeing the ocean) but I don’t regret the move to LA at all.

Back to the bell. The bell is struck five times a year: on New Year’s Eve, Korean American Day, 4th of July, Korean Liberation Day and every September in celebration of Constitution Week. This bell is so massive (according to Wikipedia, this bell and the one it was modeled after is one of the biggest bells in the world), I’d love to hear the sound it makes when struck. Probably would send shivers down your spine

Apparently there is a “sunken city” very close to this bell and I missed it. So I’ll be going back. Sorry for my lack of posts, I’ll get better at it. I promise. See you all next time!
