Proof that we REALLY live in Korea...

Thursday, September 4, 2008

FINALLY! Okay, here's what you have all been waiting for...actual pictures of Korea! I went to the Open Market in the town right off base today with my friend Amanda & her boys. It was so much fun--plus, we got a huge load of fruits & veggies for about 11,000won (around $10). Here we are posing in front of the fish. Yep, they just have fish & various other things that we normally refrigerate sitting out on tables! The girls were great! Bekah barely made a peep. You can't tell too well in the pictures, but there is not much room to maneuver--tons of people. Navigating the market wasn't too bad. Most of the time they had signs up on the tables to tell you how much things cost. There were some really good deals. Amanda made some deals when she wasn't even trying--sometimes the language barrier works in our favor! The only thing on my list I didn't get...peaches. Next time, I'll tackle that one. Here's a look at our deals:

Oh wait...those are the bugs. :)

Here you go:

Isn't it all beautiful?? Very colorful & it's delicious, so far! I'll report on the quality of the corn later...

Bloggy love,

I'm curious to see how you like Korean grapes. Not so worried about the corn.

Mom, they are leeks. I made 'grass pancakes' tonight--which no one else ate!

Helen, I love the grapes...I think the flavor is delicious, just don't like the seed part! That's just my laziness though! :)
