Our friends arrived in Seoul this past Sunday. It was a long and exhausting flight for them. Upon their arrival, I had dinner waiting for them, of course I made their favorites, pork green chili smothered burritos and my infamous (infamous in my own head) pinto beans. (S loves the beans, R loves the burritos, I love them both) I didn't take a picture of either, so I cannot post the recipes until I make them again. Sorry, I know you are all disappointed.
It was great seeing them again, it has been 8 whirl wind months since we left the states, and our friends were the last people we saw (that we knew) before we left. Their kids have grown, E is taller, and has more of a "pre-teen" face, when I left she was a little girl. Now she has braces, which are very cute on her, and is acting more grown up. J's face has slimmed a bit, but he is still the same little boy as when we left, only with braces.
We let them rest on Monday before we started our race around Seoul. We did take them to lunch at our favorite little hole in the wall, The Mackerel Lady. Now, I wasn't sure how this place would go over because S does not eat fish, but, as with everyone else we have taken here, SHE LOVED IT!!! She even ate the fish! Go figure.
The kids also loved it, E more than J. At least 5 times E said "this place is AWESOME!", "I love this place", and "Korean food is better than American food"! I guess we will be going back here a couple of times during their visit.
