Winter break!

Winter break is finally here. Tomorrow we hop the bus to Jeonju to run some errands and make our way to Muju resort! So far our break has consisted of lounging around the house finishing seasons of various shows- NCIS, CSI, Newsroom, the Sarah Connor Chronicles… ect. Yesterday we hit the local scene for some winter fun. We walked the wall (even though we weren’t suppose too!), I fell really hard on the packed ice, so we went to coffee. Wyll left me at the coffee shop and went to get asprin. He came back with drugs and a bruise patch. 🙂 This patch I’m wearing on my elbow has created a dark blue fuzz and will not be removed. The asprin are huge! Anyway we got some photos. Some are from a brisk walk on Saturday, most are from the Moyang Fortress. Enjoy!

 

There is a funny fact at the coffee shop:

1668 Coffee replaced beer as New York’s favorite breakfast drink!

Moyang Fortress Festival

Friday was the first day of the festival. It opened with a parade and even though we were working all the staff marched up the stairs and onto the roof to watch. There were three basic groups; marching bands in traditional attire, martial arts in white, blue or maroon and townsfolk in white traditional clothing. The last group looked like doctors. It was very funny. The traditional musician outfit is topped with what looks like a clown wig.

At the festival there was some kind of special ceremony performance going on. The women were wearing Hanoks which is traditional ceremony dress. They are currently worn only a few times a year for special family occasions- like for a check in with grandparents.

I also captured some good video of the martial arts performance. I think I have to post those separate.
