Korea Seoul Skygarden Curry

11 November 2022

Elevated

Seoullo 7017 Skygarden

Before we get onto tonight, I forgot to tell a story from this morning.
When arriving on the first peak, I sat to have some water and a muesli bar, and a guy arrived, making noises like he was giving birth to something prickly, and cheered as he got there, to himself. He was wearing no shoes, apparently barefoot hiking is a thing. He then proceeded to spread as much phlegm around as possible, out of his nose, out of his mouth, all while yelling nonsense. And then as I was putting my backpack back on to flee, he wanted to high five the 6 or so people that were sitting on the summit. I literally ran away from him.

Also, why is the word phlegm? Flem was not already in use. Unless you mean the Phlegmish people from Flanders.

Tonight I went to a place I have only been to before early in the morning while half asleep after arriving at Seoul station from the airport dragging my suitcase. I was going to just call it the sky walk but apparently it is called Seoullo 7017 or Skygarden.
It is similar to the concept that I think exists in New York, an old elevated railway line converted to a park in the sky, with good views.

The one here has many activities, there are cafes, fish ponds, interactive video light show things and even trampolines with mesh nets so you can jump even higher than you already are. At night it is lit up with blue lights and was a pretty cool spot to just gawk at traffic on the unusually warm night.

Tomorrow is not a hiking day. It is supposed to rain in the afternoon, which is the only rain for the upcoming week. I have no plan. Last time I had no plan I ended up in the secret garden.

By now I was starving even though it was early, so it was time for an immediate dinner. Abiko curry to the rescue! This is basically a direct copy of Coco curry, you can even choose your spice level, obviously I went for something ridiculous, but I did get the vegetarian option.

The first view from the Skygarden is a handheld view. That is Seoul station, hence the lack of high rise buildings along there where the train tracks are.

And for the final photo tonight, you have seen homeless people with all kinds of crap tied to a trolley, this guy decided to do the same but with his little truck. Mobile hoarders. I am filming a tv series based on this. Am I rich now?
