Scavenger Hunt Master List
Ok, so I needed create a Scavenger Hunt Master List, because trying to cobble all of this together across multiple posts started getting a little wack-a-doo. For those of you new to the blog, the tasks included in this list are reader generated, so if you’d like for me to add something, leave a note here or in another post. This will (hopefully) be an up-to-date account of all the suggestions I’ve received. Thanks for all the ideas!
1A. Attend a Korean drag show.
2A. Go climbing in Seoul and find a climbing partner. Also, here. And here.
3A. Attend a professional Starcraft tournament.
4A. Tour an animation studio that makes American cartoons.
5A. Take a Segway tour of Seoul. [As far as I can tell, this does not exist in Seoul. I smell a niché market!]
6A. Eat the Korean interpretation of a non-American, non-Asia food stuff. Perhaps Korean nachos.
7A. Get a non-McDonalds hamburger.
8A. Visit the DMZ.
9A. Make a youtube video of our apartment complex to replace this one.
10A. Find a) good bagels and lox b) a decent knish or c) a New York-style deli with real brown mustard.
11A. Wander for three hours with no direction.
12A. Throw a dinner party for expats.
13A. Patronize a Mr. Pizza Factory. Perhaps order lobster pizza?
14A. Visit “E+ Green Home,” a concept house that demonstrates Korean green tech.
1D. Take a picture of ourselves from the top of a mountain.
2D. Photograph a “translation that is now being presented in a language OTHER than English or Korean.” In other words, find a Spanish or French version of Konglish.
3D. Document small scale differences.
4D. Discover the Korean system for alphabetization.
5D. Take a photo of “a familiar foodstuff flavored in a way that would never occur to Americans. You know: shrimp-flavored angel food cake, or what have you.”
6D. Draw a mental map of the surrounding area.
7D. Take pictures of natural beauty: one of trees, one of water and one of the sky. Also, here.
