Happy Chuseok to you! It is the Korean Thanksgiving today, which means two things for us. First, the CEO of our Hogwan gave everyone a big gift for Chuseok. This year, it was a giant box of spam. And not just any spam - Korean spam. Really I don't know if there is a differnce other than the writing is in Korean, but I am looking at the novelty factor. And since Christine and I both work for L*Bridge we were able to double our fun. Honestly, I had never had spam before this gift. Fry it with some eggs and you have an edible meal. I'm not trying to say it was a five star dining experience, but it did the trick. We have regular spam, garlic spam, lunch meat spam, and red chili pepper spam. I know it will come in handy at the end of the month when we are waiting for our paychecks.
Second, Chuseok means that we get a four day break. Although we just got here, it will be nice for a little break. Christine helped me find two climbing gyms yesterday, although both were closed. I may reattempt to go to the closer one tomorrow, seeing as how I have the day off. Today, we went to Bukhansan National Park just outside of Seoul. We went today to try to beat the crowd since a lot of people were with family today. Bushansan National Park holds the Guinness Book of World Records as the busiest National Park in the world.
