Jagalchi Live Eel Skinning!

On Sunday, Aaron and I scooted over to Jagalchi Fish Market and took a walk through the busy market streets! I thought you guys would enjoy this video of an old Korean woman skinning a live eel! This is a very common sight in the market, and believe it or not, Koreans love eating these eels! ehhhh. No thank you!

I tried to dig a picture up on Aaron's flickr page to show you how brave I was a while ago, but I couldn't save it and import it here, so I'll tell you, instead! We happened to be walking the market streets one night and stopped to watch a lady skinning eels. Aaron dared me to touch it, but I went one step further and held it while it squirmed around in my hand! Definitely one of the grossest things I've experienced living here, but a great picture, nonetheless!
