Today I hopped on the metro and just 3 stops from my hostel was Nampo. There was quite a variety of of attractions in a small area.
First there was BIFF square which had lots of little food stalls where I purchased a rather scrumptious Corn on the Cobb. The street vendor who sold it to me took such care in preparing it. It was like he was doing the most important thing in the world and it was his purpose in life, this made it taste even better.
I then found probably the most extravagant fish market in the world, it looks more like a shopping centre or a high class marina. It is called Jagalchi Market and it had a really wide variety of fish as well as little restaurant for people, should they wish, to eat raw freshly caught fish.
From here I walked down a very traditional lane that took me to a really modern shopping mall, which I assumed, correctly I may add, that I could get a vegetarian lunch. I opted for pasta with a cream sauce which weirdly was served in big bread cob. It was a carb overload, but tasted really quite good.
With my food settling it was a short walk to Busan Tower in Yongdusan Park. I did not know what to expect apart from a tower. What I discovered was a really nice buddhist temple type setting and a huge tower with a lift in the middle taking people up to an observatory to look out over the city. I appreciated getting to see South Koreas second city from a different angle.
The areas of life I am most interested in are great design, the golden ratio, minimalism, Pareidolia (faces in everyday objects), micro living and finally I will be searching for remarkable human beings who use the power of their mind to achieve amazing effects.
