Hi everyone, not long now, I know some people have already arrived- Daniel D, Mark, Daniel G Augusto, Josh, Marina, but for the rest that haven't here is a basic list of things to bring: summer clothes-it is hot in Korea so bring plenty of things to wear-shirts, shorts, skirts, underwear, socks, swimming costume, swimming goggles, camera, shoes, water shoes, toiletries, small bag-to carry around each day, sunglasses, sunscreen, mosquito repellent, stuff to show about your country-post cards, photos, maybe some CD's of your home country's music. You can also bring a laptop-we will have wireless internet etc. of course your passport, and a photocopy of it. I also suggest having at least 50,000 Korean Won in cash just in case. Medication

As you may be aware some gracious families of Yeosu have offered to open up their homes to people form around the world, the following people have either asked to experience this or have been lucky enough to have been randomly chosen to do so. These are the people that will be doing Yeosu home stay on the Fri/Sat/Sun nights of the festival.

Hi, as you may or may not have known before, if you are all from the same country. On both the first day of camp, and the opening ceremony of the festival, we are hoping that each group of people from each country can come and say hello and so something representative of their country.
This can be something simple like a 10 second dance and say hello, come out together with your country's flag, all wear the same t-shirt, say a quick greeting in your native language etc, it is only going to be around 20 seconds each~~
As you know we have an international cafe where we will be able to show or teach something about our culture, some people are going to be bringing their country's traditional clothing, some will be filming some things like famous sites and bringing the film, bringing some music cd's of traditional music etc, etc. These are some ideas, I hope you can come up with better ones so that you can show your culture to the world.
Also, there is a fringe concert, this concert is for all people to perform. You can perform anything, singing by yourself or as a group, doing some drama, musical performances, magic, anything, please keep this is mind and prepare whatever you will need. We will work out what times each participant can enter once you have arrived, this is just to let you know.
We only have 11 days left... So close...... I am just finishing up the info packs and will send them tomorrow
Talk soon, Logan.ICI

Hi everyone, After spending the past day organising the final people who will be joining us, I have now organised what will be the final groups, I have a tentative list of who will be in what room and with whom, but I will probably be letting everyone know that stuff when you get here.
