Photo of the day: Kimchi for the poorMore than 2,000 women gather at City Hall in Seoul, South Korea on Nov. 15 to make kimchi to donate to the poor in preparation for winter. Kimchi, a traditional Korean dish of fermented vegetables mixed with chili paste and other seasonings, is a staple in the South Korean diet.
