Korea, day 6

We spent yesterday exploring some of the historic sights around Andong.

Our first stop was at Andong Hahoe Village. This village is over 600 years old. There are beautiful old traditional homes and the entire village is surrounded by the winding Nakdong river. Magnificent cliffs can be seen across the river next to the Hwasan Mountain.

We also caught a traditional performance in Hahoe Village that was quite unique to say the least. By the end of the show the actors grabbed Sophia and brought her on stage as the music and dancing played out until the end of the show.

We returned back to Andong City for dinner. After dinner we had this really interesting and delicious dessert. I can’t remember the name but it had frozen milk, ice chips, red bean and a rice cake thing on top. I loved it.

After dinner, night fell and a gorgeous crescent moon appeared, we went to the Woryeonggyo Bridge. This bridge is best experienced at night. I’m told it’s the longest pedestrian overpass bridge made of wood in Korea. It is quite a sight with a pavilion in the middle of the bridge with a reflective calm river underneath.

We made our way back to the hotel by evening and completely crashed for the night.
