Before moving here hubby decided Saturday night would be date night for us. This was the first of our Saturday night date night. Of course, I forgot the camera, so I have no pictures to share with you this time. We used a young girl from the neighborhood as a sitter, & it was very last minute, so our date was not too exciting for you guys, but it was nice for us. We went to this little Sushi place in Iteawon, which was fabulous! We ate far too much. After dinner we just walked around did a little shopping and just checked out what was going on. You know how I mentioned we thought the paint shop keeper was sleeping when we went in? Well, I find it is not that unusual. As we were walking along, several people were sleeping. The man selling watermelons out of the back of his truck was sleeping. Oh, by the way, watermelon is SO expensive here. At the commissary, a half a watermelon is $8 and it is not even organic! Next person we saw sleeping was a lady that sells street food, she had no customers. It is strange to me to see sleeping people on the side of the road - I have no idea how they do it. I have a hard time sleeping in my bed. After walking & shopping for a while we stopped at Starbucks, I have been looking for a frothing cup since we have been here because I forgot mine, but none of the Starbucks seem to carry them around here. Mine will get here soon enough. Anyway, I was still too full to even get a Java-chip frappuccino, no whip no drizzle. (I put the name in here for S, who never knows what she orders at Starbucks, because I would always do it for her)
Answers to some questions:
Hubby's brothers ask: Do the kids have many Korean peers in their classes?
The answer, yes. Boy is in the minority; about 3/4th of his class is Korean.
Girl's class has about 1/2 Koreans. Just on a side note, both of their piano teachers are Korean.
Have you found most Koreans to be friendly toward Americans or just friendly in general?
Honestly I have found them to be friendly in general. I feel very welcome here.
Next, you ask if I needed anything from the Mexican market - dude, any thing you can send here from the Mexican market would be great, although you probably already went. I know green chili's are going to be hard to come by, so if you would like to send them out that would be nice, of course it would have to be the canned ones. We have found a couple of Mexican food restaurants here & plan on trying Taco Chili, Chili soon. Wish us luck.
