This weekend there was a chance to experience 4 different tea-ceremonies on the island of Rømø!


As last year, Chieko Petersen, together with the Rømø Kunst og Kulturforening, had arranged a cultural day, including a so-called Book-bus from the german Library in Aabenraa, an exhibition of danish design, and – the japanese tea-ceremony. Quite international? : )
