A lot of you asked me to write about Korea this week. And I really want to do it. It feels very silly to me to have a blog named “California to Korea” and not write about Korea more. I don’t know how to describe why I’m resistant to the idea other than it feels… distant. Which is both literally and figuratively true, but it still feels like a cop out. Since I don’t want to cop-out and not tell you about Korea, I’m just going to cop out by sharing my favorite Korea posts with you. Yes, yes, I know, it’s probably cheating to do that this week, but I’m going to chance it because I have a lot of new readers since we moved back here. And maybe some of you have forgotten about the strange and wonderful things we experienced there.
This is by no means a complete list. If you click on the “Korean Culture” tab at the top of this page, it will give you a lot more posts. But these are good starting points.
Our first experience Eating Out. Oy vey. What a doof I was.
Lest I ever, ever, EVER forget: Hotel Life is not for the faint of heart.
Neither is Korean Barbecue. Delicious, but dangerous.
Trendy in South Korea? Couples Wearing Matching Clothes
One of the most frequently asked questions I got/get about Korea was the driving. In the post Driving in Korea, I delve into that topic.
Of all my millions of awkward encounters with Koreans, this visit took the cake (or rather, the kimchi): A Korean Guest Comes to Call
How North Korea’s Threats Felt in South Korea when we were living there. Serious post, but the YouTube video on that one is funny? But weird? But funny?
Did I do alright? For my longtime readers, did I miss any posts that you loved? Newer readers, is there anything else you’d like me to write about? Do YOU have any fun or touching stories about Korea? I want to hear it all!
This is post 4 of my 7 Posts in 7 Days.
Or #7×7 as I like to call it.
