Festivals in Korea Pt. 2: Damyang Bamboo Festival
It's been a while since I posted, so the next 3 posts are going to cover everything that's happened in the last three weekends.
So, I left off on the weekend of October 3rd. The next weekend, October 10th, I went to Damyang with my host family for the Damyang Bamboo Festival. Yes, you read that correctly. A festival for bamboo.
The host fam and I headed to Damyang on Saturday morning!
|We walked among the bamboo.|
|Took some family pictures!|
|We went to an art gallery in the bamboo festival!|
|There was this cool piece that started really traditional|
and ended with all sorts of modern pieces in it.
|More family pics!|
|That sphere.. Is actually a globe.|
|He's flawless. I'm derping.|
|Listening to instruments from around the world that are made with bamboo!|
|"Yes, these are Beats. Yes, they are expensive. No, you can't steal them."|
|The kids are tired.|
On Sunday we went to a temple! This temple has like 1,800,000,000 (or something like that) Buddhas.
|The ground is more interesting than being in a picture with me.|
|Buddha laying down.|
|Can't take my host brother anywhere. Trouble maker!|
|My host brother is forced to take lots of photos with me.|
|My host brother likes to tell me that Buddha likes to play Frisbee.|
|We then went to this sweet restaurant where the food comes out set on giant slabs that slide over the table.|
Dunno how to describe this well.
Okay, this post wasn't a lot of text. That's my bad. It's hard to remember what happened three weeks ago! I promise my next post with have more text!
Up Next: Visiting Naju and Jeongeup and going to Fall Conference with my Fulbright 진구s!
