All over Chuseok, Geochang is very sleepy. I thought I'd get a few photo's taken while it's quiet. Chuseok is similar to Korean thanksgiving. Everyone wears traditional Korean clothes called a hanbok on this day. We had a chuseok party before we closed for the holiday. Here are some teachers and my director.
On Chuseok the population of each town goes to pay their respects to those no longer with us. This is the dedicated monument in Geochang.
They also give each lots of presents. I got a new shirt as you can see.
It was a beautiful day.

Oh look at you! It looks really quiet and pleasant. Some parts of the city are typically ocidental, others look suddenly very asian.
