Jodi and I headed to Songnam and Seoul for an early Thanksgiving dinner with Rachel and Laurie, as well as to meet up with Michelle ( a close college friend of Jodi’s who just came to teach in Korea).
Jodi and I lugged this large pumpkin pie from Daegu, traveling for around four hours to finally get to Songnam. Unfortunately what we found is that our dear friends were not really ready for a Thanksgiving dinner. They had eaten the brie cheese with the baguette they had bought, along with drinking almost all the red wine they bought. Seriously! Was this a french thanksgiving?! [That’s right Rachel, if you are reading this imagine my usual glare].
But finally we coerced them to start making mashed potatoes, while broken-heartedly Jodi went downstairs to get fried chicken in a bucket….our ghetto Thanksgiving turkey.
The next day we met up with Michelle and headed to Gyeongbokgung Palace, the largest palace in Seoul.
After we ended up having an AMAZING dinner at On the Border, which of course was more than double the American price, but also worth it considering I have not had any good Mexican food in Daegu or anywhere else.
We got a love motel later that night, and it actually wasn’t as shady as I thought it would be. Minus the massive comb that sat next to the lotion on the dresser table.
Our weekend in a nutshell:
