My delicious lunch
It was really neat to visit the folk village over the Lunar New Year holiday, which is considered to be the most important Korean holiday. We got to see a reinactment of a Korean wedding, experience traditional snow sledding, venture through a Korean haunted house and have a great day with friends. Overall a really awesome experience.

Here are just some of the photos that we took at the Folk Village.

This was such a neat place to explore
My friend Soo weaving silk
Josh weaving silk. It was mcuh easier for him! :)
Traditional Ice Skating. You sit (or kneel) on a wooden board with skates on the bottom.You use ice picks to pull yourself across the ice. I will upload some fun video I took of us racing.
Lots of fun!
How creepy is this?!
We were able to see a traditional Korean wedding reinactment and this was the groom arriving
There were lots of places to jump rope set up and this is Josh and Soo jump roping. The best part was that Soo heard a little boy say, "Wow...that tall foreigner is REALLY good!" in Korean, talking about Josh! Haha!
Some sort of hacky sack traditional game
Playing a Korean game of trying to get the sticks into those three holes that are on the left
