Mmm Mandu

I ate Mandu yesterday and boy oh boy. That's right, I said boy oh boy. It was delicious. Jordana thinks the food I've been eating looks sketchy but little does she know the tastiness of it all.

This is mandu, both kimchi and gogi. Delicious!

Mandu

It is now 11:30 in the morning and I have the day ahead of me. What shall I do? I think I'll take a walking tour of Suji. I have only seen about four streets around here so far so it's high time I learn my way around. I also have to buy a few things today: a housewarming gift, a goodbye gift, and fruit and a plate for a fruit platter. There is a vegetarian potluck party tonight and since I have zero cooking skills I'm going to bring a fruit platter. Some fruits I've seen here in Korea include watermelon, pineapple, and red plums. It should be a tasty platter. Hey, maybe I'll buy a pretty dish to serve the furit on and to give as the housewarming gift. Eureka!

I have been playing with my guitar and my fingers are sore. That's cool.

So How was your walking tour of Suzi? Tell us all about the sights. You are probably at your good by party now so we will have to wait until Sunday to hear about Suji. Mom

I want to hear more about the mandu... those looked like dumplings? What were they exactly?

Glad you're liking the food, Jess. Otherwise the year would have been pretty painful. And we'd always be shipping peanut butter over to you.

Hey Jess: Rick is right, they look like like the dumplings we have here at either the restaurants or what we buy at Loblaws. How do they taste, compare them to something we can relate to.

Tell us about the other dishes you are eating?

What was your walking tour like. What did you see? What about the histry of Suji. What did you learn?

Send pictures when you can. Have fun.

Love you

Dad

It certainly is delicious! The mandu at this place tasted fresh and soft. Inside the gogi one is beef and a bit of other stuff I guess. The kimchi one is stuffed with kimchi, of course! It's better than frozen stuff from Loblaw's by far!!!

Gotta head to bed. I'll post again tomorrow.
