To the Koreans, it was just another day. To the Korean missionaries, it was another day to indulge the foreign missionaries and put up with their strange food and traditions one more time. We even made them play football!
Sis. Kerry Jo has the right idea here, treating her companion to a special snack that they sell on the streets of Korea: boendegi, a steamed silkworm pupae served in a cup. They're supposed to be healthy -- full of protein and other good things.
I tried them, once. I was brave and stalwart with the first one (it tasted a lot like warm dirt). The real challenge was eating a second one! The Koreans who were with me were impressed. And having eaten them once, I never had to do it again!

Happy American Thanksgiving to you, and may all your day be full of gratitude!
