Korea Daejeon Museum

22 November 2022

Fog rockets

Daejeon national science museum

No blue sky today.
However is it fog, smoke or both? Both I think. A layer of smoke trapped by fog. At least it is not raining.
The good news is I got my hiking with a view requirement done yesterday in relatively clear skies.

As I predicted 2 days prior on the previous rest day, on today's rest day I went to the rockets spotted from the roof of the department store.
It was largely a ghost town. There were a few school kids around but they seemed to be doing classroom activities mostly. This resulted in a very bizarre experience in the natural history museum, where I went to the bathroom, there were no kids in the bathroom. A female school teacher ran over, she was wearing an ID badge around her neck and I saw her with the kids prior. She then watched me urinate at the urinal through the glass door with a clear view of everything (not uncommon with Korean public facilities), then she watched me wash may hands, I looked over at her a few times, and she was sternly looking at me the whole time without blinking. I then opened the door and stared directly at her, at which point she shook her head in disappointment and turned around and walked off. I hope she enjoyed the show.

This mornings activity was a bit shorter as it is a rest day, but I plan to go further afield this evening for my last night in Daejeon.

I took a long winding route to the science museum, which went through an elevated park in the middle of the city. I kind of think the mound of dirt I am standing on was man made as there seems to be a few of them strategically placed at different points around the city.
