11 Day Countdown . . .

SHOPPING DISTRICT IN SUWON

Thanks to a book from Mark, I learned the basics of Korean culture and history. An acquaintance who recently moved to South Korea admitted the transition is no lark. She's having difficulty adapting- especially to Korean cuisine!

When I run across a photo of Suwon, I look for my future self. Maybe that's me, at the right, lugging a big red bag of....
kimchi?? It's surreal to think I'll likely step foot on that very street in less than 2 weeks. With a life altering move on the horizon, mentally I'm anywhere but here.

KIMCHI: The most popular food in Korea. It's a spicy pickled or fermented mixture containing cabbage, onions, and sometimes fish, variously seasoned, as with garlic, horseradish, red peppers, and ginger. (mmm.)
