This weekend I went to the Jindo Sea Parting Festival. Once a year the sea parts and you can cross a rainbow road (not at all like the one in Mario Kart!). I went through an organisation (ButlersKorea) that cost 50,000 won ($50USD), and they organised and covered everything for the day (bus and lunch). We got to see/experience a dog competition, K-Pop performance, Colour Run (okay there was no running, just dancing), lots of foreign foods, release lanterns, and we even met & got a photo with the Mayor of Jindo! This was all extra to the main event - crossing along the curved path to the island like Moses.
