this past weekend was a perfect weekend for festivals. there were a ton going on all around the city but i only made it to one, the chicago korean festival ’08. it was a great to witness some fun korean cultural activities besides the food.
on a corner where two streets meet, was a big circle of sand, where two fighters will tug on a red or blue satpa (a piece of cloth fasten to the waist & thigh). depending who is the strongest or most athletic, one will physically force the other to hit the sand first.
young boys & men took part in the wrestling, but nothing drew a bigger crowd then the girls. i wonder why?? ^^
now wasn’t that fun?
