A Korean sense of welcome

Shawn Simpson, ITER Welcome Office

 (Click to view larger version...)
On Thursday 15 March, the ITER Korean community prepared an early-morning feast as part of the Agence Iter France's intercultural breakfasts. Traditional dishes accompanied by a description were set out for all present to share and enjoy. The organizer's art of welcome and the evident pleasure in sharing their culture was outstanding. 

These intercultural breakfasts have existed for the last four years as part of the Intercultural & Language program and have demonstrated that food, as an essential part of culture, is a way to learn about a country. Beyond borders and languages, food is a universal means of communication.

감사합니다 (pronounced "kamsamnida") means "Thank you."
