A Halloween Favorite

So, I figured out what I will be for Halloween. Yes, it's been done. Yes, it seems too easy.
BUT



My students are gonna love it!


Most of them know who Pippi Longstocking is, and have read her books. But in Korea, they don't celebrate much Halloween, so I can't just go and buy a wig and an outfit. I have to make it myself. So I'm not gonna go all out with the hair. I DID, however, buy some Apricot hair dye. Let's hope it works. I'm optimistic, and I saw this pic online, so I'm gonna try to copy it. It looks pretty 'Longstocking' to me.

Now, if only I could find a monkey. I found a lot of great costume pictures. Some of the cutest, I found here.
This was my template.





Of course I found a lot of different types of costumes. Lets just say I like this


Better than this

Namhae Island


We took a trip to Namhae Island, on the southern tip of the Korean Peninsula.




The terraced fields are for rice, their main cash crop. They also grow a lot of garlic.





The area is also famous for makgelli, a homemade rice wine.




Sending up lanterns... Each one has the hopes/prayers of the person sending it up.

The locals set us up with an entire truck load of bivalves.



I caught this fish with my bare hands.



This truck window is rigged Korean-style... with a chopstick.


Eating the fish we caught... sashimi style.



And grilled.
