Images of Seoul

Here I am once again in Seoul, South Korea.  Here are some pics of the local fauna.

Jino, painting a babushka, or a Russian nesting doll. Jino used to work as a journalist at the Busan Ilbo, or Busan Daily. She says that since the recent sinking of the Sewol ferry, a new name for journalists has arisen: giraigi (기래기), a synthesis of journalist (journalist is gija=기자 and garbage is sseuraeggi=쓰래기) and garbage, hence garbage journalist.   The name of Jino’s shop is Pole Pole, which means slowly in Swahili.

This couple sells ddeokpokki (뗙볶이), or rice cakes in a spicy red stew, from their mobile cart in the Hongdae area of Seoul.   I like to slather the spicy red sauce over fried sweet potatoes (고구마) and fried stuffed chili peppers (고추되김), both of which are also available from these food vendors.
