My wife and I are going out tonight for dinner and noraebang (karaoke) with a large group of people (about 15).  Korea seems to be built for groups of eight or fewer.  Do you know how hard it is to find a restaurant and a noraebang in Seoul big enough to hold 15 people?  It’s nearly impossible if you’re not Korean or aren’t intimately acquainted with the city and don’t speak good Korean.  Seoul’s hidden secrets (such as places for large groups) don’t divulge themselves easily.  I tried and failed.  I finally turned to a friend’s wife for help.  She is Korean and knew right away where to go.  It’s times like these that really make me feel like I am a stranger in a strange land.  I’m just glad someone could help me organize it!  Well, I’m off to sing with my supper.  Dear Reader, have a great weekend.
