Food, lodging, TLCSeptember 1, 2006
What’s up everybody? I’m feeling much better today and will hopefully be up to 100% soon. I had another run this morning, along a nice “rail to trails” project in downtown Gwangju, fulfilling my 172nd week in a row of running at least 10 miles or more. These travel weeks are always the hardest, but i managed.
Now, to the good stuff. First, some food. This is dolsot bibimbap – mixed rice in a hot rock pot:
I could eat this every day. Perfect for vegetarians and meat eaters alike, as you can add meat or not quite easily. And this is “paht bingsu” a superbly delicious summer treat of shaved ice, condensed milk, sweet red beans, and various and sundry other yummies:
Now lodging. Here’s my living room:
And now, the TLC. My friends and family. My “little brother” (dongsaeng) whom I met in Michigan. Setting up camp on the floor like this is the common means of hanging out at home:
My friend from Seouldae (Seoul University or Seoul Daehakkyo in Korean), Seokjin, who was kind enough to donate the plants, table and pillow for my living room:
The cousins’ kids, basically nephews and nieces:
and two of Dominica’s cousins:
Woah. That’s a lotta pictures. Next time, the places to go for fun, etc.
