Korean Food

We had a lovely time in the city. I shopped the little Korean drawers off those 2 students. (Teens today just have no stamina!).
Friday morning, we went to see "Sue" at the Museum of Natural History.
"Sue" is big!!
The girls had fun as well. They really enjoyed the life-sized exhibits of local animals and birds as well as the aquariams with the live exhibits of frogs, snakes and salamanders.
The funniest part of the day was driving across the bridge from Dartmouth to Halifax and taking a wrong turn down Gottingen Street. While I was thinking about how to get to the museum, I heard a flurry of loud Korean from the back seat and then:
"Stop! Stop! Stop! Korean food! Korean food!"
I parked the car, and they ran excitedly back a block to this great little Korean food store where they spent a small fortune on things I'd never seen or heard of before. They were so happy!
Saturday night, the girls treated Eunjin's host mom and dad and me to a wonderful Korean meal.Kimchi pancakes, dumplings and a concoction of rice cakes, noodles and a hot spicy sauce (which the girls said was a failure but we thoroughly enjoyed).
They even cleaned up afterwards.What great little girls they are!
Now, if only we could understand half of what they say ............... IN ENGLISH!
But I'm sure time will remedy that.

I'm glad you were able to teach those gals something about shopping. what a challenge it would be not to understand their language. I never had Korean food but I'm glad they were able to find some. It must have been a great treat for them. Hope your Monday is a wonderful one!

My D-i-L is Korean and her mother cooks GREAT ethnic food. (My own daughter is also Korean but was adopted as a baby and is totally American!)
