Kaya Cultural Festival


I had a great time with fellow Fulbrighters Brittany and Rachel today as we visited the Kaya Cultural Festival (가야문화축제) in Gimhae (김해). Kaya (or Gaya) is the name of an ancient Korean confederacy that was swallowed up by the Silla in the sixth century. The festival was partly a celebration of traditional Korean culture and partly a gathering for tons of foreign cultures to come and show off their food, art, and traditions, as well. The weather was a bit gloomy, but I suppose the approaching storm caused the winds to be better for kite-flying! More photos to come!
