On Sunday, IEC hosted its 3rd annual Thanksgiving dinner. There were close to 200 foreigners and Koreans there, which was about the same as last year. Liezle even came into town just for the dinner (and to catch up with some people). After church services, a bunch of people chipped in and moved boxes and cans down from the IEC area to the Korean kitchen area. Apparently there was some minor drama from the lady affectionally called the kitchen Nazi because she didn't want us in there. She was overruled by church elders. I helped peel and slice carrots, then stirred some other veggies.
Part of the reason I took so long to write this was that I was waiting on pictures from other people. I wanted to explain what the kitchen looked like and all the rules surrounding it. Unfortunately, those pictures still aren't posted. I guess I can wait to explain more later.
|Decorations (aka left overs from Korean Thanksgiving the week before. The mass of stuff on the right is a bunch of persimmons - I will another post about those. All pictures in this post are from Jackie's facebook page - thanks Jackie!|

|Mmmm...food. Costco pumpkin pie is legit by the way.|
We got up early to meet Keung He for coffee at a Twosome Place downtown. Then I went home and took a nap before school. I feel like there is more to add, but there really isn't!
