Yeosu Expo 2012-What to do If You’re Bored

Well, for these several thousand folks, there was only one thing to do–watch the Olympics. The Expo organizers set up a huge screen at one end of the Digital Gallery showing a judo match in which a South Korean was involved. (Normally, Korean broadcast stations will show international events only if a South Korean is involved. For example, they won’t show Major League Baseball games unless there is a Korean player on one of the teams that are playing against each other.) I wasn’t at all interested, so I don’t know who won, but the audience here was rapt with attention.

Yeosu Expo 2012-Paraguay Cultural Performance

Here are a few photos of the Paraguayan cultural performance at the Ocean Plaza the other day. These lovely dancers, members of the Ballet Ibero-Americano, looked like they might’ve been very hot in their beautiful gowns, but they put on a superb performance.

So, where do these young ladies (ages 16-19) hang out when they’re not performing? Well, one place they might be found is in the Angola pavilion restaurant. Here they’re giving an impromptu performance with Gelsom Castro, the headline singer at the Angola Pavilion. You can see some photos of him in my previous post of the Angolan Cultural Performance at the Ocean Plaza.
