Korea

Or South Korea I should say...!

Our friend and biz assoc., Young Moon Ko, picked us up in his fancy car that is not a mercedes but made with the same imported parts - and who now feels like an old friend because i've met him once before. Within the hour and a half drive from the airport to Seoul, he told us we need to become millionaires, invest in real estate and have babies very soon b/c we were getting too old...oh and that we were very lucky to be traveling around everywhere...he is like our rich asian uncle.

We had dinner with his family. A traditional style Korean meal that had many courses, some like japan (sashimi) and some ribs, a lot of things you wrap with lettuce or leaves, very complicated esp. with those silver slippery chopsticks (and i consider myself pretty good...) shrimps, soups, some Korean wine (?) made from berries that was good, very fruity. and then a finale of about 10 to 15 sides and a bowl of rice and LOTS of kimchi and you take from all the sides and add to the rice or roll in the kimchi. Some fish that was marinated for a long time that we tried wrapped in kimchi that was pretty bad. but overall very good, very spicy. All the food was very spicy.

The next day his son took us on a tour of the city and the Palace. We had Korean pizza which was amazing!! Like a noodle pancake with veggies and seafood. And later, dinner with some cute young Koreans (all business I assure you) and my favorite - Korean bbq. Which you wrap in lettuce leaves and pound Korean saki! Seriously hot peppers.
