Blog 59 - 23rd December

As we prepare for Christmas, it is curious to witness a different cultural experience. The photos above are the Christmas market at Express Bus Terminal where over 300 shops sell everything from trees to ornaments, ribbon, paper, lights, bells, serviettes and tablecloths. It was so overwhelming I had to return a second time!

Anyone remember Bullwinkle and wonder what happenned to him? He's been hiding out in Seoul all those years!

Friends from work got together here for dinner on Sunday night for some wonderful Christmas eating and drinking. Some things remain the same! Thanks to Damien for his new recipe of mushroom and pesto pasta. We also introduced them to that special Australian sweet, coconut ice. Thanks to my book group friend, Suzi, for making it from especially imported ingredients. Sorry - it all went so quickly there are no photos!

At the European Christmas Fair we were able to find German stollen, mulled wine, Dutch treats and French goodies that are usually impossible to find here. The Korean yodelling choir was a surprise performance, especially this old man who could not resist dancing!
