Snow in Seoul, JJang!!

Alex, my friend and one of my old roomies from the infamous Demon House DC, had a 24 hour layover on her way home to Cambodia. I tried to show her as much of Korea as I could while she was here. Apparently, this is the most snow Seoul has had in 70 years!! I love it. JJang!!
After a night of sam gyup sal (giant bacon), dobu (tofu), soju (light vodka), makgoli (rice wine), noraebang (karoke), and makju (beer), we went to Chungmuro, and to Gyeongbokgung Palace. Ran into an Aussie photographer that I knew, and talked a bit. While heading home saw the Seoul Police using their riot shields to shovel snow!

New Year's Day in Daejeon

I was invited by Hyungsu's family to go to Daejeon, a city about 3 hours south of Seoul for New Year's Day. We got there in the middle of the night on January 1st, and ate and drank in a celebratory fashion. The next morning we woke up and ate and drank and played yut nori for most of the afternoon. It turns out I am pretty decent at yut nori, and out of 10 teams we my team made it to 3rd place. I won a bunch of soap and more toothpaste than I could use in a year!
My New Year's was awesome. JJang!!
