Andong Hahoe Village

Took a weekend trip to Andong recently to finally see Hahoe Traditional Folk Village. Perhaps the colder season is not the best time of the year to go, however I felt it also gives some insight as to how difficult this sort of living must have been. These days these houses have been converted into pensions with modern conveniences so it's not close to being the same as in the past, but still, the exterior is there.

Workshop Trip to Andong

Twice a year the school owners take all of their staff on a workshop trip. This is an overnight sightseeing trip AND it is all expenses paid. This trip we went to Andong. Andong is in Gyeongsangbuk province with a population of 170.000. I have been wanting to visit Andong since my first year in Korea but I never got around to going, so it was really nice to finally visit. In 1999 Queen Elizabeth visited Andong on her 73rd birthday. This is another reason why I was interested in visiting. I went to a mini museum that had an exhibition and it was dedicated to her historic visit!

When our bosses take their staff on a workshop they ask us to write a report to show our appreciation and to share our impressions. Naturally we exaggerate our experience to ensure they understand how grateful we are for this culture trip.

Here is our report…..
