The surface was a murky brown, peppered with yellowish bubbles, which gave the impression that there was a life deep below trying to escape the clutches of the ubiquitous alien plants.

Their dark leafy vines waved gently above the surface, desperately grasping pointed shells and shattered remnants of a creatures bones. The carcass bobbed in the stagnant waters, as if to warn visitors away; there is no light at the end of this dark tunnel.

From above, he peered down upon the tranquil horror. Glaring intently in the vain hope his fixated gaze would somehow penetrate the opaque shimmering surface, he wondered what mystery lay beneath.

Alas, it was futile, the inevitable beckoned…

With a deep breath, he gently lowered the steel rod into the oblivion below.

Feeling tension immediately grip upon the device, he scooped it back out into the sunlight with the effortless grace of a wizard casting a spell.

His eyes widened with terror as he realized what he had caught. For among the seaweed and shells, he spotted tentacles and bones…..

What was this? The Cracken? Nessie??   No….far worse…..

Behold!   Korean school lunch!!

 

Korean school lunch

 

How did you adjust to the food in Korea? Were you as horrified as I was in my opening weeks?
