Well, after a few months hiatus and general rest and recovery from the joy that is teaching, I am back in the saddle so to speak and back in Korea. Maybe I will have to change the name of this blog, given that I’m no longer in or near Wabu-eup.
Anyhow, I’m in Jeonju, a smaller city number about 650,000 inhabitants and which serves as the provincial capital of Jeollabuk-do, otherwise known as North Jeolla Province. It is a very nice city as far as Korean cities go. A good site to see what cultural and historical sites are here can be found by clicking here.
Jeonju is also home to bibimbap, that wonderful dish of rice, vegetables, meat, spicy red pepper paste, and an egg. While this dish can be found all over the country, it was invented here in Jeonju.
It is good to be back in Korea. I look forward to renewing my acquaintance with kimchi, especially that of the Jeolla Provinces.
I have visited this city before and was really taken with it. I have posted photos before and will be posting those links once I get around to it.
