Happy Korean Thanksgiving!

This week is Chuseok (Korean Thanksgiving) so I’m getting a nice break from teaching.

Right now I’m in Gyeongju with all of my host mother’s extended family–it’s just what you would expect when you gather a large family together: fun and chaos! Besides the rituals around honoring ancestors, Chuseok is very like American Thanksgiving.  From Noraebang (Karoke, I had to sing Clocks by Coldplay) with the grandfather at 9 am to copious amounts of beer and fried chicken, it’s one crazy experience to the next.
