The Unknown Tea...

Well I few weeks ago I went into a spice and tea shop to expand my experience of tea. I have been really interested in learning about Korean Traditional Medicine and herbal remedies.

Zachary's Birthday

Birthday at LCI
Well, I turned 24 this year living in Korea. Time flies by so fast. Well, I couldn't be happier living here with my beautiful wife, paying off debt and getting to see the world. God is good. He is so good to provide for us. Here are a few pics. Be blessed.

Korean Field Trip

Ahhh...A Korean Field Trip.
We were very excited about our first field trip to the sweet potato farm! We soon realized that the field trips here in Korea are about as disorderly and chaotic as ever.
All of us teachers patiently led our children around a huge farm two by two, with NO IDEA where we were going or what was happening next.

We hiked up hills, to go down hills, to turn around and go back up hills, when the person we were following went the wrong way. Or just to take our kids to the bathroom.
We led our kids through a huge parking area of closely parked charter buses. (This was the only path to get to the sweet potato crops)

Gim Bap

We recently went on a field trip at LCI!
All the kids were very excited and the moms were equally excited, as each kid had a pack full of snacks, candies, fruits, drinks and gim bap!

Gim Bap is sea weed and rice filled with ham, egg, veggies (or anything you want) all rolled up into a roll,similiar to sushi.
Instead of pulling out the bread, meat and veggies or peanut butter and jelly to make a sandwhich, like at home, mothers here make their children Gim Bap. The Korean lunch food. Very easy to carry and not messy at all!
They are very tasty and healthy too!

(also, all the kids have these really neat and nifty containers for all their food. I don't know why we don't have all of this in the states!)

Korean Fact #11: Old ladies in Korea, are called, "ajumas," and usually have feisty personalities.
