Kim Bap

Kim Bap is like a sushi roll, but Korean and treated as the national sandwich. You can buy them everywhere and they cost 1000 Won ($1 us). My first reaction was that these are just trashy California rolls, but now I am addicted to them and eat them all the time. They are usually: egg, Krab, Ham (or spam), radish, spinach and carrot wrapped in rice and seaweed. But you can have them add: sesame leaves, cheese (processed cheese food product), Kim Chi, or Tuna (tuna salad out of a can with mayo). The tuna I think is icky.

Dalki Part 2

Click for Video
Here is the second part from the Dalki series. This is kinda old, because I couldn't get it published because it was too big and well I am getting ready to leave South Korea for good and my mind has been else where besides the blogosphere. sorry. I have tons of stuff to get up of the last month here, but there may be a lapse coming up as I move my belongings back to the States and prepare for my six months of traveling around the US and maybe a few other countries around there, but Im not sure yet.
Stay tuned to find out!

The Yellow Book

At this book store in Heyrie art village, North of Seoul, They had an exhibition of books and in one case was The Yellow Book, All of them! I was so excited. There were 13 of these published and they were literary magazines, from the turn of the 19th century. The cover art was done by Aubrey Beardsley. He also did the cover of The Savoy, which was another and well I was so happy to see these for the first time in my life.

Christine's Birthday

Click for video.
Christine is the director of the school where I work. It was her birthday and the owner, and I guess by tradition, made her drink more and more soju, here she is hesitant to drink this last shot, that she obviously doesn't need.

The Rodeo at Everland

They gave me a bunch of kids to look after who were bored with sledding, so I took them to ride rides. Here we are on the Rodeo. I love how 70's this one is. Watch for the K girls who work there in cowboy outfits dancing.

Everland!!

Everland is the Korean Disney. It is a sorta big theme park. They have snow sledding and an indoor waterpark and of course rides. We took the kids from school and had a blast.

Rice water tea stuff

there is this stuff served in many a restaurant in Korea that is rice soup/tea stuff. Basically they boil off the burnt on stuck rice and then serve it. Luckily this is free. Very bland.
