Korea Daejeon Food Omurice

19 November 2022

Illuminated

A quick visit to Daejeon Lotte for dinner

It was not a long outing this evening but it was illuminating. I stumbled onto some lights in a park that are one of many festivals the local Daejeon government are trying. If you read the wikitravel page for Daejeon it has a few other festivals listed that have been tried and failed on the first attempt, with the posters advertising it as the 1st annual event still on billboards on the outskirts of town from years ago.

After being illuminated I headed to the other department store for a predictable dinner location. Getting there was also quite illuminating, all the streets were filled with modern style shops. Daejeon city centre is quite large.

I do not know what Seogu is or why it needs healing with lights strung in a park. I think I prefer not to know so I can make up a ridiculous reason in my head. I dare not type it here in case Seogu means something horrible. OK I checked, Seogu is just the name of the district the lights are in. Why does it need to be healed? So many mysteries.

The Lotte store is a couple of km away from the main bit of the city, but it is all still shops and city in between. I think the shopping and eating area of central Daejeon is long and narrow.

I found the former premier of South Australia and he now owns a coffee shop in Daejeon. I stopped in to say hi. Except I cannot picture what he looks like so I have no idea if it was him. Was Dean Brown a middle aged Korean guy?

And finally, in the spirit of fairness, last night was the Samsung store, tonight their competitor, the LG store.
Tomorrow is not a hiking day, allegedly.
