Rice Festival

This last weekend we attended the annual Rice Festival, in Icheon.  While definitely not an adrenaline rush by any means, it was a fun weekend activity.  There were performers of both traditional and modern music and dance (it was rather amusing to see a bunch of younger guys in traditional costume doing break dancing, let me tell you!), educational displays, historical displays, traditional crafts, and food and goods vendors all over the place.  For me, the best part about it was the performers in the traditional costumes and performances, as it was a chance to see something different that was distinctly Korean.  Only thing that I didn't like about it was they had the P.A. system turned up so loud that you could not hardly stand to be anywhere near the performers to see them, at least not without endangering your hearing!  Overall, I thought it was an enjoyable day.
