Suwon, Korean Folk Village

My school vacation officially started and we headed down to Suwon, a city south of Seoul. As we were searching for lunch a downpour soaked us, but we still trekked on to the Korean Folk Village. There are about 240 homes, shops and other attractions that have been authentically reproduced to look like various regions of Korea. Some of the buildings were actually moved to the village from countryside areas. The rain seemed to hold out as we explored the village, only to have another downpour as we left. At least we had some relief from the rain!

Some very spicy ham
Folk Village
What was once probably a very small waterfall now rushing from the rains.

The previous night we had some delicious Korean barbeque with my friend Ellen!
