Hey! well if i wasnt convinced that Bonghwa was in deed mushroom crazy before this festival i am 200 % sure it is now!! Bonghwa festival lasts for 5 days all together and in this time the river banks are filled with stalls, selling mushrooms, (of course) grapes, foods, arts, just about anything you could think of! I think it is the first time my little town has come to life!! So we headed down to the festival! the mushrooms ranged in price form ya normal type to the pine mushrooms whice were on average about 80 pounds per kg!!! aghghg!! so nope decided i wasnt buyinh any of those!! we went for a meal at the festival though which had mushrooms in it!! and a couple of pine mushrooms so that was me pushing the boat out! nope sorry dad didnt buy ya any to dry and send you!! there were various music things on and stuff howerver all timetables were in korean so when i had the plan of "lets go check out the listings board" everyone jus laughed as i realised i could only read the time!!!
over all had a great weekend! chilling watching the old people playing 3 legged races while hitiing a plastic pig!! and yes i have photographic proof cos i couldnt believe my eyes!! haha!!
well hope you can now see how the madness of my liccle town really suits me wuite perfectly so to the fact that i do indeed seem relatively ( i stress relatively ) normally insane within such a town...must be a first!! 😊
managed to go for a little walk by the river too which was nice 😊 look over the fields towards my apartment, and the local farms surrounding the area, think may need my long socks on though before i go back! not too sure bout the bugs!! i keep getting bitten 😞 they even got my face this time!! i must taste better than the koreans!!

byeeee for now!! hope your all well! for the post cards i have recieved i am very gratefull my house is slowly looking less blank however more are required to give it a fully decorated feel!!! 😊 hint hint!!!! hehehe!!
