Korea--New and Old

Monday March 9
Inchon Korea: Another story of recreating a society after mans attempt to destroy it. Very cold and gloomy to start with. Today’s adventure takes us through Inchon, a city of a million skyscraper apartments. They literally consume the horizon. Our guide informs us Koreans are a little pushy but in a hurry to get the job done and done right. They are still not up to speed on what they should do with orphaned children. The highest rate of adoption from foreign countries by Americans is from Korea still. The day turned pleasant with the sun beaming on our poor freezing fannies. Our day was spent at an Old World Wisconsin type Folk Village. Its 260 buildings on 243 acres represented the Joseon Dynasty. It was like Disneyland without the Disney. Very clean and very authentic .You will have to see the pictures to appreciate this one!. Our lunch was very authentic and I only recognized about half the types of food. I don’t think I want to know either. A classic wedding was performed, see-saw performers , a great tight rope routine ,a troupe of young athletic folk dancers and musicians made up the entertainment. We found some Nutty Buddy ice cream and spent the last of our Korean money. I truly have seen Nutty Buddies all over the world so far.
