This weekend we not only went to our first wedding but also experienced our first Halloween in Korea, all in one day, quite the contrast!

For Halloween we decided to dress up, a little challenging in a country that doesn't celebrate Halloween. However, we were able to find one or two shops with minimal items to use. I decided to be a vampire (backcombed hair into a giant nest,black eyes, red lips-simple) and Paul decided on a Pirate (easy options). Our friends Chris and Tawny had decided to go as 'Where's Wally (or Waldo to the Americans)' and a Ragdoll. 

Where's Wally?

Once dressed and good to go, we realised we didn't actually have anywhere to go... Most people we knew were heading to Daegu for a Halloween party, but we wanted to do something a little different. We decided to go check people's costumes out at the main foreign bar here in Pohang-Tilt, our favourite costume in Tilt was...

 After a short time in Tilt, we wandered the streets of Pohang, had a few photos with locals-who were amazed as its their first experience of Halloween on a larger scale (last year there were very few foreigners in Pohang). We also posed for some 'in character' photos:

 Chris appeared 'somewhere' in every possible photo (aside from these), he was just SO in character- drama kids hey!

We ended the night with a 'scary' film,  that didn't turn out to be so scary (much to Tawny's delight!), 'Wolfman', a banana bubble drink- tapioca balls, whaaat and all in great company! Another wonderful weekend in South Korea.
