Merlin, I Just Swallowed a Bug

I had an interesting experience tonight. We have our sub leaser living with us the last week we are here. his American name is Richard. He is really nice. i say his American name because he is Korean. we took him to the Korean market tonight to get some food that would make him feel more at home. he wanted me to try these.

If you can't tell they are bugs. well, silk worm larva. apparently Koreans eat them all the time and josh had them several times in Korea. I didn't want to try them but Richard insisted. By the way, it took us a while to convince Isa to get that close to them.

This is a picture of me right before i ate it.

Of course i had josh video tape this since it will NEVER happen again. Click here.

Hahaha! Awesome. I don't know how I made it through 2 years in Korea without anyone even offering it to me or trying to get me to eat it. And one Korean guy gets you to eat it IN AMERICA. It seems so strange... way to go ;)
