The Hantan River Valley

Taken on an overcast Tuesday this week by an excellent pork galbi restaurant that overlooks the canyon. Pretty, isn't it?

We had a teachers dinner there for the 4th time this year earlier this week. It seems to have become a favorite place with our principal as of late because we would usually eat in Wasu or Gimhwa restaurants, but now we go this place in nearby Goseokjung. The restaurant even has a shuttle service that comes to our school to pick up all the teachers who don't drive or don't have cars. The exact name of the restaurant eludes me now. It'll get posted later. Suffice to say, it's quite good eating.

This past dinner ranks among the best--and drunkest-- of the teachers dinners in Korea. I've written previously about the customary pre-dinner shot of soju, but this particular evening featured the soju plus somaek (soju and beer together) and boilermakers because some kind soul brought a bottle of Scotch with him. You know it's going to be a good night when a half and half boilermaker arrives in front of you before you start eating. My principal's a generous man. Cheers!
