7 Weeks in Korea

Box of strawberries for ~$4.5! Cheap?

Cool tow truck!

E = mc^2

Shopping in Homeplus. 10 minute walk from home. Cross this river and another road and I'm there. Homeplus is a really big supermarket. They have everything you need!

Dinner after shopping in Homeplus. Food court on the top floor of Homeplus. The food court system is a lot different to food courts you will find in Australia

First, choose your dish and remember the respective dish number. All the "restaurants" dishes are displayed together. Once you know your dish number, say it to the lady at the counter (in Korean if you can (: ) and pay for it. There is only one counter where you can pay for your meal and that is usually located next to the food display

After you have paid, the lady will give you a ticket with a number (this is a different number to the dish number, this is just a ticket number). The top left name in Korean is the name of the "restaurant" where your food will be made. So look around the food court and know where it is so you can pick up your food (this is an old ticket from a few weeks ago)

While waiting for your food. Keep an eye on that TV screen with the numbers. Once your number appears on that (usually the new numbers are shown on the top left corner), your meal is ready for pickup

Dinner is served! 7500W (~$6.5) Cheap! Once you have finished eating your meal, return your tray to the restaurant

T Money card. This card is used for transportation; buses and subways. If you use this card, it's cheaper than paying the regular fare each time you use the bus or subway (only around 100W (~10 cents) cheaper). My particular card can been used everywhere in Korea (Seoul, Deajeon, Busan etc.), but you can buy cards that are used only in specific areas, e.g. only in Seoul

In Daejeon, there is only one subway line. Korea has a similar system to Japan, where each station has price next to it, so you pay more the further away the station is

If you don't use the T Money card, this is what a regular subway ticket looks like, a plastic coin

Inside a subway station. Safety first!

Inside the train. Just like Japan

Hyandai Veloster!

Cool! I've noticed that a lot of people leave there phone numbers somewhere near the front windscreen. This is so that people can call them if there car is in the way and needs to be moved (people park everywhere in Korea!)
