Andong

kingdom. The Battle of Gochang in 930 was fought here between Hubaekje forces and the Goryeo army led by Wanggeon (Taejo of Goryeo), who won control of the city and renamed it Andong. After the ascent of the Joseon dynasty to the throne of Korea, Andong became a centre of Confucianism. The area was extremely conservative for a long time and produced many leading confucian scholars. Toe-gye Yi Hwang (Yi Hwang) (1501–70), one of the most prominent of all Korean scholars, came from Andong. Yi Hwang retired back to his homeland late in life and started the establishment of the great Confucian academy Dosan Seowon there, which was finished after his death. During this period Andong and its principal families were influential within Korean political circles, of which the three notable families were the Andong Kim, Andong Jang and Andong Kwon clans. After the 16th century Andong became less influential until the early 19th century, when a marriage of the local Kim (Andong Kim) family resulted in strong influence on the royal family. Andong was the site of intense fighting during the Korean War in the early 1950s, the Battle of Andong. Although the city was almost destroyed, it was quickly rebuilt. In 1976 the Andong Dam was built, providing the city with a reliable source of electricity. In 1999, Queen Elizabeth II (Elizabeth II of the United Kingdom) of the United Kingdom celebrated her 73rd birthday in the city.

Local specialty foods thumb left Heotjesabap (Image:Korean.food-Andong.Hansik-Heotjesabab.jpg) Andong has famous local foods that originated in the city such as ''heotjesabap'', ''Andong jjimdak'', ''Andong soju (Soju)'' (a rice wine), ''Andong sikhye (Sikhye)'' (a punch), ''Geonjin guksu (Korean noodles)'' (a noodle dish), and salted mackerel. http: www.hansik.org zh restaurant recommendRestaurantView.do?fboardId 1075 ''Heotjesabap'' is a variety of ''bibimbap'', served with soy sauce (''ganjang'') instead of the ''gochujang'' (hot pepper paste) that is more commonly used. ''Heotjesa bab'' consists mainly of several types of ''namul'' (young sprouted vegetables) over white rice. It is also served with grilled fish, shark, and ''jeon (jeon (food))'' (Korean pancake). The dish originated in Andong. The term, ''Heotjesa bap'' literally means "dishes for fake ''jesa''" that are ceremonies for death anniversary and ancestor veneration held in Korea. The reason it is considered fake is that it is not covered in incense ash, as would happen to any food sacrificed in a jesa ritual. ''Andong jjimdak'' is a variety of ''jjim'' (a Korean steamed or braised dish), made with chicken, cellophane noodles, and various vegetables marinated (Marination) in a ''ganjang'' (Korean soy sauce (Soy sauce#Korean)) based sauce. The name literally means "steamed chicken of Andong." commons:Andong


Faroe Islands

. The general view in the Faroes is that the Faroe Islands are undisputedly a separate nation but are, alas, a part of the Danish Kingdom - Danes are automatically looked upon as foreign nationals. In Denmark the Faroe Islands are a part of the Denmark - and the Faroese do not represent any nation different from the Danish one. * Danish and Faroese people do not understand each other. There are many stereotypes in Denmark, which portray Faroese people as being less civilized and extremely conservative - Supporting this view are Danish newspapers who thrive on extreme cases. Faroese people can’t bear these clichés. So, if you are from Denmark don’t come to the Faroes and think you are flattering people by telling them how everyone must love sheep rearing and how proud they all must feel about their rural existence. It’s a no go. Faroese people live ordinary suburban lives and don’t know what on earth you are talking about, and only find you weird, insulting and embarrassing. * Most Faroese people are very proud of their national heritage, so avoid criticizing Faroese traditions. You may have heard of the ''grindadráp'' whale hunts and dolphin kills; most Faroese regard these hunts as an important part of their culture, so it is best to avoid strongly criticizing the hunts as there is likely to be a sharp retort. * Faroese people are known to be very helpful, friendly and hospitable and expect you to be the same way. * If you go and visit the old part of Tórshavn around Tinganes - don´t bother the people who live there (like peering in through people's windows or ask if you can use the toilet) - the old wooden houses are not a tourist display, and their inhabitants are getting increasingly tired of visitors who fail to understand this. Connect There is widespread cellular phone and Internet access. Many tourists use the Town library or the National library to go on-line. They are both in Tórshavn.
