Korea Busan View

8 June 2022

Mission completed

Busan Chinatown and Lotte store roof

I set myself 2 missions to complete in Busan during my previous diatribes and tonight I completed both.
1. Photograph the Hotel cat, completed. He was just sitting in the street, in front of the main door, watching everyone go buy.
2. Capture the view from the Lotte store roof, although it was not dark, but I think they shut it off at 8, so not much I can do about that. Great view though!

I also walked back to the main Busan station, which was really not as far as I thought, and then discovered Chinatown and Texas town over the road. That was quite an interesting combination.
I also did a tour of a few different markets, a sewer, everything.

There are a lot of photos for an evening post so lets get into it.

Korea-Busan-View - Korea has no concerns about educating Koreans about Chinese war heroes. I doubt there is a similar mural of Tojo.

Tomorrow I go to Yeosu. I have not been there before. It is a small place, 5 hours away on the slow train.
