I just had a bit of a shock seeing how long it has been since the last time i wrote on here. So here are some pictures of food and events with captions. Sorry about the layout - i'm hopeless at this sort of thing and this Blogger site doesn't make it easy. Going to opt for a change of plan so this will be the last post on here for a while (so what's new? i hear you cry) You'll notice i don't really mention work…we do go to work and do real jobs but who wants to hear about that - it's a school, we all know what schools are like. This following blog is what life here is all about - why we love it and why we will probably be here for another year or so. Come and visit!

In other, non-food related news, here a few other moments of note during the year.
|Half marathon in Gyeongju - just after cherry blossom time.|
|The wedding of one of our Korean colleagues. It was different and yet familiar, up to a point. The groom did a Psy number in the middle of the ceremony. Both bride and groom read personal messages to each other and cried. It was a conveyor belt sort of affair - the buffet was delicious but was shared with about 6 other weddings that were happening simultaneously in the same venue. Still a very happy occasion despite that.|
