Hi, we are Mrs. Snider’s third graders. We would like to know if you plan to travel to China, because one of us has a sister who was born there. We would also like to know where you plan to travel that you are most excited about visiting? In your postcard you said that you liked Korea because of the food. What is your favorite Korean meal?
Sincerely Your Friends,
Mrs. Snider’s Third Grade Class
Hi Mrs. Snider’s Class!
One of you has a sister who was born in China! That is so cool! We wanted to go to Shanghai, and then to Tibet (which is now technically a part of China, but it wants to be it’s own nation) at the beginning of our trip- but, it was too expensive for us to go. Americans have to get an expensive visa to even enter China, and then pay more fees to go to Tibet. Even though we REALLY REALLY wanted to go, we decided we couldn’t afford it this time. But both of us have been to Beijing in the past! My mom and I went together five years ago! It’s a really interesting country, and I wish I could speak Cantonese!
I am most excited to visit India, and Turkey, and Greece, and Morocco, and Mozambique, and Brazil, oh and Chile, Peru, and Cuba! I can’t pick just one!
My favorite Korean meal… I don’t know if I can pick just one thing here either! (I’m sorry!) I think my most favorite thing to eat is 회덮밥. You say this like “whey-dob-bab,” it’s chopped up lettuce, raw fish, rice, spicy pepper paste, sesame oil, garlic all mixed up together. It’s sooo good! I also like kimchi chiggae, a really spicy stew with kimchi and pork and tofu. And I like Korean bbq! Korean food is really spicy. When I first moved to Korea, I couldn’t eat anything spicy at all, but now I love spicy food!
Sincerely your friend,
