Hulled Rice

Day 3

On day three of our holiday we decided to go to Icheon which is famous for two things: rice and pottery. The pottery was beautiful but mostly out of our price range. Mr. K. bought a kind of stew pot that goes in the oven though. I wanted to see the potters at work but as I found out today we were just in slightly the wrong place. We stopped for lunch at a little hole in the wall kind of place with the low Korean tables and ordered the rice. The rice came in a boiling hot clay pot with 20 different side dishes including grilled fish, two types of salad, cucumber kimchi (my favorite type), beef bulgogi, tofu soup, and many many more.

I also wanted to check out an outlet mall but while we saw it from the interstate we had no luck in actually getting there. A very upsetting yet normal occurrence in Korea. On the way home we stopped at Baskin Robbins for ice cream.

The kids had had enough car riding and were not very pleasant on this trip. Then again neither was I.
