I got wind of his 2008 video the other day. While watching it I got choked up for some reason. Yes, I know that those of you who know me well are aware that I could get choked up watching Keanu Reeves read Shakesphere - but this is good. Trust me!

Seriously...I know I've mentioned it before...but they're crazy about side dishes here. They're called banchan and they're free. They come with everything and are always a little bit different. There's seaweed with sesame seeds and sesame oil, marinated mushrooms, clams, pickled ginger, tofu pieces, shrimp, seasoned bean sprouts, and of course...the ever present...kimchi!
Nagan Village is an old walled fortress town that has been well preserved. There are still people that live in the town but it leans more towards tourist trap than actual town.

Pheasant hunting party???
Many of these traditional homes are also minbaks. Minbaks are similar to hotel rooms - except they have no beds.
The traditional love pose.
We sat just outside the wall late into the evening drinking soju and eating watermelon with some locals. It was a very cool evening.
