My food experienced during this South Korea trip has been a bit mixed. I’ve really enjoyed the meat. The beef and pork, cooked in broth, or atop a bbq, has all been delicious. The vegetables… a little bit less delicious as they are a lot bit pickled. It seems that with every meal we get a small dish of kimchi and a small dish of pickled radishes. The pickled radishes are served cold and covered in a strange red powder which is both spicy and salty.
Pickled radishes aren’t a delicacy that I’ll be bringing back to the House of Rock.
Our business meetings start today (Tuesday – it’s 2:50am here). Hopefully they will be a wild success and Shaun and I will get Thursday and Friday to tour around South Korea. It turns out that you can actually go on guided tours to the DMZ. We might check it out.

If you do go, make sure to grab me a souveneir Land Mine.
i fear (and secretly hope) that they really do have souvenier candy-filled land mines…
Once again I’m jealous about your trip to a foreign place. The fact that you might have 2 extra days to hang around is crazy. Whenever I get 2 extra days, it’s overtime in a mill someplace.
Fun fact – SK has a full-time post of 65,000 US soldiers to man the DMZ.
Not fun fact – There are actually no land mines in teh DMZ. Kimchi, the national dish of Korea, is the taste equivalent of chili-powder spiced toe cheese.
By which I mean to imply, the North Korean people, while being incredibly destitute and hopeless, at least have better food available in their forced labor camps.
