THE DAY PLAYGIRL GOT LOST IN KOREA - PART THREE






THE DAY PLAYGIRL GOT LOST IN KOREA - PART THREE

Food I found to be a little unusual if not bizarre was fried worms and grasshoppers. These were for sale pretty much everywhere. I never imagined that I would someday eat fried worms and grasshoppers, but I did because it is considered rude to decline from eating these insects. Can't tell you what these bugs tasted like because I believe I’ve kind of blocked it from my mind to this day.

I found this very interesting link on:
ARTHROPODS Bugs for breakfast, lunch and dinner

These are some of the worms and grasshoppers I ate. Oh well, if I've eaten Mountain Oysters, (THE BALLS OF A BULL) in Laredo, Texas, I can eat anything!


RICE FIELD- RICE PADDY
All Koreans try to have one on their land, so you see them everywhere.
I tried some rice cakes, they were very tasty.

THE DAY I GOT LOST IN KOREA

On one occasion, I was supposed to meet my friend Kelly in a military instillation near Seoul, the capital of South Korea. My big mistake was forgetting to get off the subway at the right exit. As soon as I realized this, I immediately exited at the next stop without having any idea where I was. I couldn't understand any of the signs because they were written in Hangeul (Korean). I asked a couple of ladies for help but they totally ignored me. They didn't seem warm and friendly like the ones near Camp Humphreys. I felt extremely helpless, just standing there with all these Koreans rushing passed me. I started crying and wanted to call my Mom and tell her I was lost! I just stood there not knowing what to do. As I became more flustered, while tears ran down my cheeks, a kind gentleman approached me and asked if he could help me. I told him that I was lost. He asked me if he could help me find my way. At least that's what I understood because he didn't speak too much English. He helped me get a new subway ticket and boarded the subway with me. When we reached the correct exit, he kindly directed me to the door. I was so very happy to see Kelly still waiting for me at the place we had planned to meet. I was afraid she had already left, since I was almost 3 hours late. Those 3 hours seemed like an eternity to me. You just can’t even begin to imagine how alarming it is when you need help so desperately and the language is different among its inhabitants!

The Koreans that own their shops and restaurants near Cam Humphreys were very friendly and hospitable. I enjoyed shopping at their stores and eating at their restaurants. I tried many new dishes while I was there.

I liked eating just about everything except Kimchi, Korea's national dish, which consists of pickled cabbage with many different potent spices. Kimchi is prepared in large quantities, then burying the jars in the earth to preserve it for the winter months, when fresh vegetables are scares. Koreans are very proud of their Kimchi and is found in every meal, as is their steamed rice, so they serve it everywhere, anytime. I personally could not stand it, much less the taste of it. It was obvious when someone ate Kimchi because their body reeked of the odor. I was not the only American who complained of the smell. I disliked Kimchi so much that if given the choice, I’d eat those YUCKY Mountain Oysters again!
