red and white: canada day
in honour of the first of july, us canadians abroad celebrated our country, in true canadian fashion: BBQ on the rooftop terrasse, miller genuine draft beer, and fake flag tattoos. a bit on the trashy side, which was the beauty of it. "real" western food from Costco (salad, a bunch of fruit and veggies, hot dogs, chicken). lazy sunday afternoon, a bit cloudy but very, very hot. i don't think there is a way to ever escape the seoul heat actually, it's just getting worse. we invited our korean and south african friends and introduced them to a bit of canadian culture, they seemed to really enjoy it. our korean friend actually came back later asking for more canadian-themed party favours. we used our rooftop terrasse- koreans usually only use the roof to hang laundry or store kimchi pots, but us canadians saw the full potential of it: the perfect venue for a party, and hopefully many more summer night get-togethers.
