Back to Cheonan in the afternoon for an appointment with culture and tradition. We were dressed in traditional Korean outfits called hanbok and provided with a presentation on Korean culture, including a demonstration of the traditional New Year’s offer of respect from children to parents.
From there we were off to dinner with the vice-Mayor ad his wife at a restaurant famous for pork cutlets. Turns out that’s Korean for schnitzel! Yum. We had a lovely time and both the vice-Mayor and his wife spoke fairly good English having worked in New York state for a couple of years. We joined the mayor, vice-mayor and other international guests for the closing ceremonies of the dance festival where we were treated to one last dance by each of the 10 international groups and 8 domestic groups that participated in the competition. The awards ceremony followed – Georgia rules!
