Here now and now here or nowhere

The title of this blog comes from a play on words that "now here" is also the same letters as "nowhere" just with a space added in the middle. I am always trying to get better at being in the here and now, and I've always been a bit of a joker so that is why I chose this name.

Jinbu Day 2

Today we went back to Jinbu.  What a difference a day makes.  Yesterday was snowy and cold. Today, sunny and well not as cold (but still cold. brrrr)
The reason we went is because the little girl who was staying with us really wanted a red bean fried cake, so Zarina and I were the babysitters and also were given a little list of things to pick up.  There was an open market today though so we got to have a fun little experience.  The girl was just like an ahjumma (an older korean lady, usually bossy) which was really funny for Zarina and me.  I got to try a lot of different foods which i really dig. Soondae, pigs feet/ham hocks, some type of larvae, and PICKLES!!! (the pickled soy sauce garlic was the shit!).  So all in all, it was a pretty fun day. Also, some old scary korean lady told me I was very handsome. So i got that going for me, which is nice!
