Busan is quite a beautiful city with hills and sea settings, and the city spreads itself around the geography and it's impossible to see everything from one vantage point. Change is in the air. A huge building is coming up and I took the time to go to the site to see for myself .. not much yet though.

Too bad the weather wasn't so good. Next time I'm in Korea I might head back if the weather is good.

I walked north from the Lotte site towards the international ferry terminals, where there is regular service to Japan, which isn't so far actually. I believe the ride to Fukuoka is only about 2-3 hours. Fellow HK forumer InitialD18 suggested I should've gone for a day trip. Breakfast in Busan, ramen in Fukuoka for lunch, and dinner in Busan again. [img]images/smilies/smile.gif[/img]

While there are these tour buses that ply the city, I opted to do a bit of exploring on my own instead, although I did consult their itinerary to make sure I covered most of what they had.

Need directions? I'm at the bottom right quadrant.

I walked back inland and went to the Busan Modern History Museum, where I understood how deeply engrained the resentment towards the Japanese colonial rulers remained. The tone was very strong, at times overdone, but the Koreans have done a very good job educating their young on that part of history, amidst a wave of nationalism and whitewash attempts that have plagued Japan of late. I doubt the Japanese young are as aware of what happened in their parents' and grandparents' generations.

The exhibition also includes a lot of photos showing Busan of the past. What a change it has been.

Gukje Market is just around the corner from the museum. It's a huge web of many street markets that sell everything from clothes to metal pipes. The scale is very staggering, and Busan is a very lively city at the street level.

I didn't think KFC were in the street vendor business. [img]images/smilies/smile.gif[/img]

Being a foreigner with very little Korean language abilities, bargaining in this setting was a challenge. But in the end I did buy a few t-shirts.

There are a lot of food stalls along this particular street. It's interesting to watch, but I wasn't brave enough to try until a bit later in the day.

By the way, the seaweed rolls above are quite good. [img]images/smilies/smile.gif[/img]
