OK, so here are my pictures from Korea. I’ve divided them up by days:
Friday: Nagoya to Fukuoka, Fukuoka to Pusan:
Saturday: Pusan tower, Jagalchi Market
Monday (New Years): Haeundae Beach, more wondering around Pusan
Tuesday: Ferry from Pusan to Fukuoka, some time in Fukuoka, the best ramen I’ve ever eaten plus more
I will write some more separate posts about each of these. The weather when I went to Korea was great. The first day was pretty cold, but after that, it warmed up and was tremendous. One difference I really noticed was customer service. In Japan, even if I go to a convenience store in the middle of the night, I’m welcomed with open arms. In Korea, even in all the restaurants, the reaction was more like, what the heck are you doing here? But anyways, you do get a lot of food, like 12 plates of stuff with every meal, no matter what you order. Also, I can read Hangul (it had been four years since I had been to Korea, but I did remember it), however, that doesn’t help me at all, since I have no idea what anything means. Fukuoka was a real pleasant surprise, a little robot store, and like I said, the greatest ramen in the history of the world. I’ll have a few more posts about all of this later, but for now, please enjoy.
