Anmyeondo beach party

They only served one kind of beer at the party... for 5000 won a bottle!!! It was Moosehead Lager, a Canadian beer. There must have been some Canadians involved in organizing the event. They also had cocktails for the same price. The food available was hotdogs, kebabs (4000 won) or pitas (5000 won). They did have bottled water for 1000 won a bottle, but they ran out fairly early in the evening. Not a smart thing to run out of water. Those in charge seemed to be a bit confused about many things throughout the entire party. They weren't very organized, I think. It was great fun, but not quite what was advertized. It was on a bit of a deserted beach (no little stores or anything around to buy your own drinks or food or water). Even the bus driver had no idea how to get there and was driving around for a bit trying to find it.
The little stage was set up just above the beach. Everyone set up their tents along the edge of the beach (safe from the tides). You couldn't get very far from where the music was as the area was quite small. There was plenty of room infront of the stage for dancing, of course.
Not far from the dance area, they also had a little sheesha/hooka tent set up. What's a beach party without one?!! :P
I think D and I finally went to sleep around 5 or 6 AM. The music was still pounding away, of course.
They started packing up everything at around 10:30 or so. It was supposed to be 24 hours of music... 12pm to 12pm. Didn't quite work out that way. They had expected a lot more people to show up, as well, I think. Not sure how they would have dealt with more people, as they ran out of things with the numbers that were there.
