It was a beautiful spring day, and many school groups and women were enjoying the sights and picnicking at the park. True to character, as my family was being introduced to their first Korean Cultural Heritage Site, someone was heard referring to the double mound burial site as the "Double D's"! I guess exposure to culture is not always a refining process!
On the way home we enjoyed “donkkaseu”, which is a Korean version of the Japanese tonkatsu, or breaded pork cutlet. Everyone had fun grinding their sesame seeds to add to the dipping sauce (tastes like A1 steak sauce); but did not enjoy the lukewarm "barley" water, which is often served in Korean restaurants.
A short stroll from the City Hall area took us to Namdaemum (south) gate and market. Pigs feet anyone? Don't ask me why it is that when I get around my brothers, that competitive drive compels me to do horrible things like eat one of those nasty silkworm larvae with Greg - who claimed he thought the disgusting snack was somewhat tasty! YUCK!
Don't expect a photo of me - I already conquered digesting the live baby octopus when Dave and Melita came for a visit!
