Korea - part 2 of a billion

What should the second installment be about? Will it be about how insane traffic and driving is here? How about how the national trend of of boys dressing up and looking more and more like girls? Maybe I'll talk about the Engrish things I've seen, or I'll introduce you (selfish white people) to Conglish. I don't have too much photographic evidence of any of that so I'll talk about drinking. Basically, I've been hanging out with my retirement-age uncle (who I'm staying with) and his friends. How it works is you go to a butcher and pick up some Three-kinds-of-fat or some other type of meat and then you head over to a Sool-jib (Drinking establishment). Then you eat, drink Soju (Korean Rice Wine) and be merry for a few hours and go home. And the butcher drinks with you.

There a also a whole bunch of etiquette rules to learn, but I won't bore you with those. Instead here's a bunch of pictures of old Korean men.

Did I mention that Old Korean Men are awesomely hilarious! No? Well, while I was there they were just ragging on each others English Skillz. Too Funny.
