Why a sippy cup?
My love is the yaksuteo
Don’t be shy, drink up!
About the poem:
In Korea, many hiking trails have a mountain spring. In Korean, the name of the spring place is yaksuteo. (Pronounced yahk-sue-tuh, nearly rhyming with up)
In busy Asian culture, spending time with friends is often considered a luxury (to be sipped!), since work, study and family are higher priorities. But, in Ghana especially, I learned that these simple, unhurried interactions are the most valuable, and it’s my mission to love in that way.
Dude, this makes for some interesting relationships here in Korea, I must say! When it comes to the amount of time for friendship, there seems to be a clash between a scarcity and an abundance assumption.
