11 Jun 08 -- Icheon Ceramic Festival

Two weekends ago we went to the Icheon Ceramics Festival with our friends Jesse and Stephanie. It was about an hour drive from here and we had a great time checking out a Korean festival. We ate corn dogs (yes, corn dogs) and sweet potato chip-things. We saw a Taekwondo demonstration and a traditional tea ceremony. Charlie and Jane were big hits with the Koreans and it was an adventure walking with Charlie through the ceramic vendor booths (2 year olds are not ceramic-friendly!)

The upload didn't accept my rotating the pics, so you'll need to turn your head sideways for some of these.
