I realized that there would be things that I would not be able to buy or that would be really expensive in Korea. There were some changes, however, that I did not prepare for. Here is a list of things that I/we miss.
1. Normal-sized towels - The ones here are the size of a hand towel or two hand towels sewn together if you put out the big bucks.
2. Milk - The equivalent of a half-gallon is almost $4 here.
3. Meat - 6-7 Chicken breasts were about $16. Pork seems to be the cheapest but it still costs a pretty penny.
4. Normal-height brooms - I think those at the store were made for midgets. They only come to, at most, my hip.
5. Peanut butter - $6 a jar here
6. Spices - I can only find a few spices: rosemary, thyme, sage, bay leaves, cinnamon, and oregano. We practically lived on chili powder, paprika and lemon pepper before we left.
We were eventually able to find decent sized towels and a broom though we have yet to purchase them (Costco apparently doesn't take VISA cards when even the corner market does!). I know that there are more things that should be on this list. Maybe I am having trouble remembering the rest of the list since it is late. Oh well.
