Never before having spent Thanksgiving in a foreign country, I was sad to be away from my family, which has used this weekend for a family reunion every year since before I was born.

The weather here is like the weather in southern Indiana, where we convened for decades (grey, rainy, cold), so that felt familiar at least.

There are some places to buy turkeys according to various expat sites (the national bird not being common here as you would expect), but we don't have an oven in our apartment (they are rare in Korea) so we couldn't cook one anyway. Several hotels hosted Thanksgiving buffets, but that seemed like a rather depressing route.

Instead we ate a place down the road that has a large sign in front reading "Roast the Rib of Beef and Pork". Roast them we did and it was a nice Thanksgiving overall.
