The students ordered Domino's pizza for us after class today. It was so excellent! This is the pepperoni pizza (you can tell that it was actually a LOT more greasy than American pizza...which is hard to imagine!)
Jana was so excited to see pickles in the pizza boxes. We have jalapenos...Koreans have sweet pickles.
How to make paht bing suh (red bean ice flakes): Ice cream, ice green tea powder, red bean paste, pineapple, cherries, rice cake. Mix together until you spill it all over the table...and enjoy! Ok, so you aren't supposed to spill it everywhere like we did...lol
Us outside of the "Ewha Valley." This is a newer edition to the school, and it has become a famous landmark in the area. It is simply breathtaking!
The sides of the "valley" are actually classrooms, the library, and some other rooms. Notice how it's all technically underground.
Yummy street food! This is kind of like a donut with a little peanut butter in the middle. Well, Erin's was peanut butter...Jana and Elizabeth had some apple cinnamon ones.
Shopping at Insa-dong, we bought scarves, silver chop-sticks, and original pieces of art work. There was so much to see it was overwhelming! This is our sweet friend Ami before she had to leave.
This was definitely one of the best meals we have had so far...bulgogi is our favorite :) We are beginning to get the hang of meal customs...chopstick skills are improving as well as water- pouring duties :-) Jenny and Sunny were wonderful hostesses!
The restaurant...so cute! Apparently the name means something like a memory of hunger...or something like that. There's not really a good English word for it.
Buck and Colleen from New Port Beach, California. Colleen came over to us while we were waiting on our dessert, and we had such a great conversation. It was so great to hear "War Eagle" (Buck graduated from Arkansas!). Thank you, Buck and Colleen, for coming over and talking to us, and for letting us hug your sweet necks! It felt a little more like home here because of you two!
This was Elizabeth's favorite!! Green Tea Ice Cream, it is amazing!!! You pour a green tea syrup mixture over the top of it for more flavor and fun effects! (Erin's favorite part was that the syrup actually froze while on top of the ice cream! Yum!)
Sunny, such a sweet girl!! We really enjoyed the day with our gracious guides!
