The first place we went was the Jeonju Traditional Culture Center. Our group started off in the auditorium where we learned the mask dance and the lion dance. Don't laugh at some of our pictures.
Then we went to make our pencil boxes, our paper craft activity. They turned out to be pretty cool. We sat near the front and constantly had help from the instructor. Jeffrey would start, and she would come and pick up his box and start to do it for him. It was so funny. We totally had the cool table. And if you notice, I had to pick the maroon box of course!
After making our pencil boxes, it was time for lunch. We had the traditional Jeonju dish, bibimbap. It's really healthy and really good. We ate in the typical Korean fashion, shoes off and sitting on the floor.

|Bibimbap - you mix it all up together and then devour|
Here is the paper making factory we went to. It was super hot inside. And of course, you know I have to include pictures of the dog we saw. He was so cute and just ate up all the attention from us. If you look in the second picture, you can see his little dog house.
Here is the Jeondong Cathedral. Beautiful inside...
And here is the elementary school that we visited. We had 2 group leaders - the boy is in 6th grade, and the girl is 5th grade. She was so cute....she kept fanning me with her paper. I guess I looked really hot.

That's all for now. My laptop is about to die. I will post the rest of the field trip pictures tomorrow.
