2 Canadians in Korea

Welcome to our blog. It's designed to give people back home an idea of what it's like living in South Korea and to allow you to follow us on our journey.

I've been blogging a lot of facts and I feel I should say that some of it is copy pasted from books, the internet and the signs that I took pictures of at the tourist site itself.

School Trip #1

Here are a few pictures from a school trip we had a few months ago. All the teachers from the 3 Reading Town schools went on this trip organized by the school owner. We had a traditional Korean meal with very tasty fish and the oppurtunity to make some famous Korean food.
First off, we went far into the mountains to get to our destination. We saw buildings that told stories from long ago just by looking at them. It was a very small town with a lot of beautiful scenery. It was like the Ramore of South Korea.

Next, we made some tofu using these 2 solid stones that crushed and grinded beans into the white pasty cream you see falling off the side of the stones. We added the beans in a hole on the top and a little water to make a better fluid consistency. The rest (boiling and such) was taken care of by the Korean chefs. Next thing we knew, we had made tofu.

We also made some Korean rice cakes. More fun to make than it is to eat. Basically, take cooked sticky rice and hammer it until it's turned into one thick gluey consistency and add some kind of flour and it becomes a rice cake!
Our last stop was at a train station where there was an old TV/movie set for a Western cowboy style movie, where we met this cool old guy making everything out of straw. Shoes, hats, bowls, stuffed pets, you name it, he made it. He loved having his picture taken with foreigners too and he had a great smile. Thank you Reading Town for a great trip.
