Historical Events: Korean War

On June 25th, 1950 some 75,000 soldiers began to fight it what is known as the Korean War. The North Korean Army started it by crossing the 38th Parallel which is the boundary between North and South Korea. This would later be known as the first action that started the Cold War. After a month of fighting between North and South Korea The United states finally stepped in during the month of July on behalf of South Korea. This made American Officials question this action for they feared a third world war could begin. Casualties upon Casualties occurred. Then finally in July of 1953 The Korean war ended. 5 million civilians and soldiers died and yet the Peninsula is still divided to this day.

People: Daily Life and Cuisine

Daily life is Different for each country for example people in Pakistan would never eat pork but chinese people probably eat it for breakfast each morning. When people wake up in the morning they get up from a western conventional style bed n most countries. In poor countries a blanket or two is what they would sleep on. People use the conveniences around the cities for daily needs such as pharmacies, markets and in urban areas malls are popular. Commuting is just like the United States in which people don't live in close proximity necessarily but in communities near by. EX: The Woodlands-Houston. The Asian cuisine consists of a variety of small meats and a vast amount of fresh cut fruit and vegetables. Traditional cuisines consist of very little fat and a huge amount of protein.
