They pop the grape out of its skin and into their mouth, discarding the skin, then they spit out the seeds. I think the skin tastes fine so I just eat it.

I believe this is a variety of Asian grapes with easily detached skin, so it might not work so well with other types of grapes.

I live in Korea largely because it's not where I grew up. I like the US and it's a good place to live, but for some reason it's not for me, at least not right now. I've been living abroad on and off for 6 years, still not ready to go back.

I like the little (or big) challenges of living abroad, and the new things I could never have experienced back home. Like today, I witnessed the laborious process that is the Korean way of eating seeded grapes. I like encountering new things, even if it's a stupid way to eat grapes.

Yup, it's been a while. I need to remember to stop by here more often.

I'm glad to see you've kept the photo challenges going. :)

I learned the word for "acorn" recently in Korean. I still struggle with remembering how to say things like "bring" or "hear". But if I ever need to talk about acorns, I've got that covered.

I'm from the US, live in Korea. As a result I usually wind up on websites when they're dead because everyone in the US is sleeping. Happy Friday morning, it's the weekend here. :)

Whoops, forgot it was April. Do you want me to take over the rest of the month?

Just woke up.

Those are some great street scenes. I think some of the best photos of cities are the ones of the people that live there.
