9 Weeks in Korea
Seafood dinner with the lab. Very Nice!
Daejeon at night. In front of Chungnam University (the other university in my area)
Daejeon in the morning. The two older people dragging the trailer walk around picking up rubbish left outside shops or apartments. I'm not sure if they are the same people, but this is quite common to see
... and wider
소고기 김밥 - Sogogi Kimbap (Beef)
... and back up!
On my way to Seoul. Crossing my river
After crossing the river in the picture above. I had to cross that river you see in this picture. Near Wolpyeong subway station (my closest subway station)
Outside Wolpyeong subway station (takes around 20 minutes to walk here from my home). From here I catch the subway to Deajeon Station, then I catch the KTX to Seoul. Street shoes anyone?
Book vending machine inside the subway station
Deajeon station. Waiting for the KTX
Inside the 'normal' KTX carriage. The seats in the front half of the carriage are facing backwards and the back half are facing forwards. You can pay a little less to sit facing backwards
50 minutes later.. Seoul Station!
First stop.. Cheonggyecheon
Old and new shops along each side of the stream
We only walked 1km of the 7km Cheonggyecheon stream
Near the 'popular' end of Cheonggyecheon stream
At the end looking back. I was told Cheonggyecheon looks much nicer at night
K-Pop group performing at the end of Cheonggyecheon. A lot of fan girls around!
Mr. Pizza for lunch!
Pickles are always served with pizza in Korea
At the end of Cheonggyecheon
Crossing to the other side of the road. Shelter for the homeless..
Deoksugung Palace. 10 minute walk from Cheonggyecheon
City and the Palace
Changing of guards. Those guards stand there all day
Walking along the outside of Deoksugung Palace
This picture isn't squashed..
Gyeongbokgung Palace on the left, Cheonggyecheon in the middle and Deoksugung Palace on the right
Old people gathering inside the subway station. There were so many!
Korean back streets. On the way to our accommodation
Around Dongdaemun Market
Another stream next to Dongdaemun Market
The subways in Seoul are much wider than the subways in Daejeon
On our way to Itaewon
Small street shops line the sidewalks of Itaewon's main street. You usually can find cheap fake goods in these street shops
Itaewon back streets
A lot of foreigners live in and visit Itaweon, so you will find many international restaurants here
Itaewon side street
Gas station for trucks maybe?
Where did level 4 go? Number 4 is considered to be unlucky in Korea
Next day we visited Myeongdong (popular shopping district)
A bit more busier now. We arrived early, around 10:30, and none of the shops were open yet. Shops in Korea usually open late and close late
Shabu Shabu for lunch
Many of the sales assistants can speak Korean, Japanese and Chinese. A lot of foreigners visit Myeongdong!
Back at Seoul station. Korean traditional performance
Inside Seoul Station. Orchestra peformance
And finally back at Daejeon
Sunday evening traffic
People walking along the river
Walking home through a park from the subway station. Ducks!
