Adventures at the Folk Village
A couple weekends ago we went to the Folk Village near Yong-in with Eddie and Gisela. Even though the weather was a bit nippy and I was suffering from a death cold, we still had a great time. It's a really fun place and there are lots of interesting things to see and do over there. You can ride horses, watch traditional dancing and tight rope walking, go to the amusement park, try your hand at thrashing hay, playing traditional games and you can teach your kids traditional ways to torture people. Say what?! Yep, you read that right and I have photos to prove it.
"No son, you need to spread your brother's legs out wider. Like THIS!" So weird. Most cultures are sensitive and embarrassed about their torturous pasts. Not Korea!
Despite the weather, the park was fantastic. I love fall and the colors were amazing at the Folk Village! I really recommend going there.
Some highlights were the tightrope walker who looks about 60 years old(I took not one, not two, but three short videos of him!!) and Gisela riding one of those robot furry animals. Some other foreigners came by and called her pathetic (what the heck!?!) but we just said the baby wanted to ride (Gisela is pregnant).
We were rained out but luckily we'd seen everything we wanted to at that point. I am still have picture issues with Blogger so you should really just head to my Photobucket to check out all the awesome pictures we took. Seriously, there are some really good ones of the scenery and of Matt seesaw battling with a Korean guy.
