See Day 1 HERE
Well this is Day 2 of my time in Busan. This is what I woke up to…
Apparently a very famous river in Busan, which shows up in textbooks? I remember H’s Aunt saying something like that…in general, I was more impressed with the view. It was just…lovely. It actually looks prettier, but it is winter, and well the screen on the veranda got in the way of the picture.
I wanted to get some stuff to snack on, and drink, so we stopped by 711. Or so I think it was 711, that’s what I seem to recall…
Anyway, we got our stuff, and we boarded our bus.
Our first stop was at a national park. What was it called you ask? I have no freaking idea.
H fill me in if you remember.
Otherwise I might research this place later on, once I get some sleep from suffering through my exams.
This was our second stop.
That dome in the background is a great place to go for those who are fan of seafood. Basically you go to the main floor, select the stuff you want to eat, then go upstairs. There they prepare it for you, and you can enjoy a incredibly fresh meal of seafood.
My mom was totally jealous when she saw this…she loves crab. Enough though recently, she cut her finger because of the sharp claws…it got SEVERELY infected (like it tripled her original finger width. it was bad :T), had to go to the doctor…who then sliced her finger to remove the clotting, then put her on a derivative of penicillin to work the insane infected. The doctor who took care of her was Chinese, so he totally understood that she loved crab. He says that he prepares them for his wife cause he doesn’t want his happening to her. She Aww’ed at that. I would have as well.
Now the following pictures are what fascinated me the most while I was here.
This is an entire alley…with all this older women making street food (Kimbap and the like), for people.
I swear it was 2 blocks of this.
It was crazy. It really took the meaning of street food to another level. At least to me :P
Street shopping was pretty fun. H and I actually picked up outfits for our dogs here. They were rather cheap, $5, and made of fleece. I got a yellow bunny suit for my dog. She hated it -___-
Look Ma! We went to Busan and all we bought was Daiso! lol
Oh just to mention, the thing she is standing beside is the drop off and pick up location for the tour buses. They have their route on it, and approximate times.
I wanted to take more pictures, and to enjoy the city. So I forced, yes FORCED H to sit on the open upper level with me. It was cold, and I’m pretty sure the poor thing caught a cold because of me. But we had so much fun.
Doing what you ask? My friend H and I sang Nanananana Batman! while laughing ourselves silly…good times…
If you don’t know what I am talking about…
I think we went back in to check if we could get our tickets bumped up to an earlier time. But seeing as it was the holiday season, all the seats were BOOKED. Even the one where you had to stand in the train for the duration of your travel. So we figured we would wander around a bit more.
That is when we found our way to China Town.
We finally got on our train.
I would like to mention, see in the middle of the picture, there is the connecting doors, and you see people standing? That is the standing ticket that KTX offers. You literally stand the whole trip. Though you save some money, I would not be willing to do that for several hours -___-
Anyway that was our time in Busan. I took videos on my brothers Lumix GF1, and had no idea how to transfer them on to the computer. I thought they did it automatically! I found out much later, after I had erased the memory cards, that it wasn’t the case -___- was super sad when I realized that, as I lost the video of us singing the Batman song lol
