I’m currently in Jeonju, the birthplace of bibimbap. The day after my family left for Virginia, my partner Taurin and I took a bus down here. It rained so much on the way, but the weather’s been holding up for us. We wandered around for hours visiting traditional houses in the hanok village. The Jeonju locals have been extremely friendly, and we’re finding the city easy to navigate.
A quick video I grabbed of the traditional paper-making process.
Now that we’ve eaten several bowls of bibimbap and eaten numerous bean-sprout dishes, we’re looking forward to our trip further down south to Busan. Coincidentally, my friend Mika is also traveling there from Japan!
P.S. In case anyone was wondering, I was so hungry both times we ate bibimbap that I didn’t get a single photo!
