Out for Chuseok

Chuseok is one of the biggest holidays in Korea. It would be the rough equivalent of Thanksgiving back home…but instead of celebrating the rape and pillage of hundreds of cultures across a vast continent they honor dead family members. But there is a big dinner; no turkey. Also they have a week off school, instead of only 3 days.

You can read all about Chuseok here, and here.

Long story short, I will be out at some Korean guys beach house for the week drinking with some peoples and seeing something other then concrete and skyscrapers for the first time in 3 weeks. I probably won’t have internet…so sorry if you find yourself wandering around aimlessly, wishing for an update.

I promise you will get one when I get back.

    I’m getting real sick of your thanksgiving bashing… rape and pillage are far superior to remembering the dead…

  2. who said anything bad about raping and pillaging?

    those are two of my favorite weekend activities…sometimes i also etch my likeness into the stone walls of buildings/bathroom stalls just so they remember who i am
