Seeing the city

Here are April and Jasmine. They were my Holt volunteer guides, and are some of Seoul's best ambassadors. We are at the gates of the Korean Folk Village. At the village there were traditional games you could play. One such game involved throwing 3 multi-sided sticks, with writing on them. Depending on how they landed, a wall chart would reveal your fortune for the year. Based on my throw, I would be in trouble, a good friend would help me solve my trouble, and I would have a wonderful year after that. We then tried the Korean version of washers. It is played with blunt arrows that you try to throw into rings elevated off the ground. Needless to say, we were all bad shots.
