One last picture of the Guri Market, for good measure.
Two ajummas managing their product in the Guri market. Guri Market has been a favourite place of mine to take photos over the past year and this picture in particular is one of my favourites.
One of the many food vendors on the streets of Guri-si. A cheap, hot bowl of deokbokki is the perfect cure for a chilly winter evening.
Although she has passed the torch on her claim of being the “Soju Queen”, Wendy proved tonight that she is undoubtedly the “Queen of Successfully Picking a Random Number to Win an Oversized Piece of Melted Sugar Candy”. Yep, there can be only one, and it’s her.
The view of Guri Station, the park, and Lotte Department Store from the balcony at Larry and Lana’s apartment.
Christmas dinner at our school owner’s apartment. My entire apartment is the size of a single bedroom in theirs. I wish I were kidding.
My Korean friend Kim has a caricature of himself painted on the wall in his bar. It’s badass. Not unlike Kim himself.
This is the second major fire in my area in the last two weeks. I tried to get closer to it for a better picture, but wasn’t able to with all of the traffic and emergency vehicles moving about. Apparently this one was at a storage facility. It was pretty windy and I heard later that it took them a long time to get this fire under control. Hopefully no one was hurt!
Our friends Kim and Misa celebrated the two year anniversary of their Japanese restaurant in the Guri market with a day of free food and drinks for their friends. There were lots of people there, both foreigners and Koreans. It was a great way to spend an otherwise quiet Sunday afternoon. Congratulations, guys!
A quiet Saturday night playing cards in Guri-si.
