My First Chuseok

Chuseok is Korea’s version of Thanksgiving.  It originates around the Autumn Harvest similar to our own “holiday” – except not as dark of a history.

Last night for Chuseok, my friends held a potluck dinner at their apartment building.  As my first holiday from home, it was everything I could have asked for.  Great friends, ie my new family, amazing food, an excellent playlist and relaxation.  My contribution to the meal was beer and fanta because my kitchen doesn’t work yet.  There was a potato dish, chicken salad, rice with vegetables, salad, cucumber, crackers and for dessert – melon.  All so delicious.

Tonight I was requested to get a picture of the harvest moon.  Unfortunately cloud cover eclipsed our view, but not before I got one photo.  Below are a couple pictures – one from my building, a couple of the outdoor area which is packed full every night and finally of the moon.
