Korea Daejeon Yuseong

22 November 2022

Feet washing station

Yuseong hot springs

Tonight I went to Daejeon's third shopping and eating area, this one has convenient spots to wash your feet in communal troughs.
Surprisingly, the Daejeon hot springs only opened in 2007. I briefly visited the area by accident last time I was here, but this time it seems to have had a lot of development with parks, trees, art installations, lights, and a few more foot washing pools.
It is mostly arranged now so that you can read your phone at the same time which is convenient, and they have air guns to blow your feet dry after you have finished washing them with the 100 year old woman next to you.
According to the wikipedia I just read, it cures alzheimers and neuralgia. You can't argue with science.

Tomorrow I have to kill a few hours, before heading to the train station and returning to Seoul, so it will be boring photos.

It was almost raining but not quite. And given that I walked quite a long way to get here I was glad of that. I think last time I was here I stayed somewhere near that orange sign on the giant home plus store you can see in the middle of the stream here.

There are hundreds of hotels in this area, but also some shops and lots of restaurants catering mainly to groups of people. This is the local department store, NC wave, most Korean cities have an NC wave, they are generally quite small, this is the biggest one I have seen.

I was very happy with the Ramyun I had for dinner. Actually I think Ramyun is just a brand, they still call it Ramen. This appeared authentic to me, there was even a couple of Japanese guys in there trying to use English to order. They had on those sleeveless work jackets with company logos on them like every little Japanese worker man wears.

And for my last pic this evening, I stumbled into after dark garden store world. A whole street full of similar shops. The inside was quite large, and they stay open until 10pm in case you need an azalea or ficus at that time.
