Seoul again, to drop Owen off and French food!

I took Owen to Seoul after Thanksgiving dinner at Natalie's place. We stayed at a swanky hotel and ate lunch at a French restaurant. I had the STING RAY!

Gangsanae show

My one Korean friend, K took us to a show by the band "gangsanae", which means "RiverMountain". It was good, almost like Cat Empire. Then we went out for a LOT of beers and munched on dry fish with a couple of K's friends.

Bike accident

This morning was very very foggy. I decided to turn the lights on my bike and cycle to school anyway. I was almost to school, when some idiot on another bicycle, turns out from behind a big truck and then starts going the WRONG WAY up the street. Before he managed to get very far though, I was right there, slamming on the brakes and flying over my handlebars. A chunk was taken out of my finger and I slammed my chin on the ground. Later, a handlebar shaped bruise appeared on my leg. Check out all the gory details in the photos below...

Live shrimp!

This week, the Diner's Club went to eat live shrimp cooked on salt!

Some of the best shrimp ever, also with some of the worst washrooms ever. Basically a dirty outhouse on a mound of garbage in a junk yard that stinks. Gross!
