Something You May Not Know About Korea
Something you may not know about Korea is that all the chopsticks are flat, heavy, slick, and metal. I had practiced using wooden, plastic, and bamboo chopsticks in the states before I came because that was all I had been exposed to. However, the first time I picked up the unweildy sticks in Korea, I was shocked at how most of my acquired chopstick skills faded away. Two wobbly strips of metal floating independently between my fingers is what I had.
