Well I know it's been a longgg time since I updated my blog and I have much to tell. I promise I'll update you all on what I got up to during the summer this week but before that I wanted to write a quick note about last night.
So a few of us went out last night for a spot of dancing. Now although I do love being in Korea there is one thing that Korea lacks and that is decent wine. In a word, their wine is pretty 'rank'. I've tried some horrible stuff since I've been here and I was about to give up looking when last night, thanks to my korean co-teacher we discovered the perfect wine bar which had lots of different wines from around the world (I skipped the page listing the Korean wine - yuk). Anyway, after having nearly a full bottle of red to myself (oh, how I have missed it) we headed out dancing and that is where the fun started. We ended up in one of our local spots which plays a mixture of Western and Korean Pop music (known as K-Pop) which we love. Now this bar is very popular with Koreans so Westerns normally get some attention when they go there (well, maybe more girls than guys). Anyway, last night we seemed to generate more interest than normal and we ended up dancing in a group of about 20 people where we were the centre of attention. We were like minor celebrities. Each guy took his turn strutting his dance moves infront of us and if I'm honest some of them were pretty good dancers. Unlike guys from home whose dancing goes no further than the 2 step, Koreans are big into a kind of break dancing with lots of fancy footwork. Anyway, we danced until the wee hours of the morning and then called it a night.
Well, that's it for now. chat to you all soon
