So I finally had soju, the famous and all too popular drink here in Korea. It's similar to vodka and it goes down super smoothly.... maybe even too smoothly! A group of us went out for drinks in honor of Erin's birthday. We were a fairly big group, mostly foreigners and mostly English teachers.
Here I am with the birthday girl and our shots of soju. I have to confess that I drank much more than I expected to. By the end of the night I had probably about 4 shots and 2 beers. I felt sick later that night, but I woke up without any hangover. So I guess that's good.
Here is Maggie (one of my coworkers) with some guys from another school.
Kiren, Danielle, and I toasting to... well, I think we were just happy to have soju in hand.
More toasting... it never seemed to end!
But at the end of the night, this is what we had left: a bunch of empty bottles! The total for all of this madness was only about $120. Which means for about $8 each, we had a solid 4 hours of good times. Not shabby!
