A new month a new adventure

One of the most famous (or infamous) things about Korea is their love of sitting down and eating Dog meat!

Eaten mainly in summer by males, to help them avoid the heat and build Stamina, Dog is a meal that is taken very seriously in Korea and despite what the new wave of trendy Koreans say, is a very real part of Korean life.

Well after almost 4 months here I was losing my stamina and needed a boost, and what better way than to eat 'mans best friend'.

So myself, another whity (NOT nicole)and a Korean friend all headed down to the local dog restaurant to chow down on 'dog soup'. To be honest I was a bit worried, not morally, but I had heard it had a very different taste to the other meats and a unique smell (hopefully not like wet dog :) ).

We ordered off the nice waiter and awaited our soup!

To be honest, as the pictures show, it looked like normal soup. However, the taste was very different, not bad, but also not excellent. The meat indeed did not have much taste but the soup was great and was quickly finished.

So that was that, I had eaten dog and survived to tell the tale, while it was not the best meal I have had while in Korea, it was certainly one of the strangest.

Well my stamina is back and I'm off to plan my lessons for school.
