Speaking of travel, I just got an email from my friend Thor (one of the guys from Mountain Crossings / Neels Gap,) who's in South Korea teaching English. Sounds like a really neat arrangement he's got, neat job in an even neater place! Here's a funny little snipped from that email:
good too, though their idea of seafood differs from in the States. I
have learned not to expect shrimp, scallops, and crab. Here it is
octopus, squid, urchin and eel, different but good. If you are lucky
it will be cooked, as it is normal for it to be raw. Fine by me, but
after that third helping of raw squid you wonder if you can feel
things moving around down there. And on occasion, it is moving around,
so remind yourself to chew thoroughly to avoid any attempts at escape.
Also, I grabbed this picture off the common drive of the Krasin cutting ice recently. Not sure who took it, but thought it was neat and figured I'd put it here.
