The Korean Embassy opened its for doors to the public for Windows of the World, a celebration of our embassies and Australian diplomatic relations. So much amazing food it was hard to choose, but I went with Bulgogi. It is delicious, especially to the background K-pop music is equally awesome.
The Korean Intermarried Women’s Association was a very interesting stand at the Windows of the World festival in Canberra.
Korean Australians do not represent one of the largest groups of intermarriage in Australia (Canadians, Americans, Indigenous Australians and Thai people top the list). Nevertheless this stand was sociologically interesting. The other stands were food related, there were a handful of different Christian Korean groups and community friendship groups. In amongst this mix, I loved seeing a women’s group! They seemed to be having a lovely time and were nice to try to answer my sociology questions.
The Embassy of Bosnia and Herzegovina hosts this public celebration for the Windows of the World Festival. Unlike the other embassies which had a constant stream of different public, the event seems to be attended by people who all know one another and most people are speaking either Bosnian, Croatian or Serbian, including the MC. It’s more like a family event.
