Korea Daejeon Jungangro

20 November 2022

The old city

From Dunsanro to Jungangro

Tonight I walked from the new city where my hotel is, to the old city, where the train station is. It is not as far as I thought. No more than 5km.
Also I think I could say from Dunsan to Jungang, the ro on the end is probably optional, but then there is also gu, so pause for brief research. Ro means street, there are other versions of this such as gil, and gu means suburb. OK so that is now very clear.

Walking from Dunsan-ro in Seo-gu to Jungang-ro in Jung-gu was a largely boring walk, with only one of my now daily streams to appreciate. At one point I walked along an elevated highway over rubbish dump looking areas.

Once in the Jungang-ro area and it was very familiar, mainly because of the brought to you direct from every tier 2 to tier 88 city in mainland China LED roof. I will explain in the pics.

Here is the above mentioned elevated roof at the centre of Jungang-ro. If you google Daejeon you will probably see this. The shopping / eating area here is vibrant but compact. It was quite busy even on a Sunday. More so than the Gwangju equivalent.

These people are lined up to buy a panetone. You know, the things near the checkouts in Australian supermarkets for 6 months either side of xmas, a cake in a cardboard box.

Jungang-ro also has a very large double lane underground mall under it. With a few offshoots in various directions. It has a fountain. Most of the shops with piles of shoes had piles of shoes.

And for my dinner, poor people food! I went to a Gimbap (Korean standard Korean menu Korean food place) and got the fried bits of dough with vegetables. You cannot really see it here but the vegetables under the seaweed are swimming in Gochujang. Sometimes this is actually more like dumplings rather than just dough, but obviously I selected a discount gimbap outlet.
Tomorrow, hiking in the national park day.
