Busan is nice


If I say I don't have sore muscles, I would be a lie. But I'm not alone in this. The 4h training yesterday left its mark on some. So it's not bad at all that there was no training today and a day trip to Busan was on the agenda. After 1.5 hours by car we reached the second largest city in South Korea. Master Kang's cousin accompanied us today and showed us some highlights of the 5th largest port city in the world. We started our sightseeing at the Busan Tower, which is located on the Drachenkopfberg and is 120m high, again with a beautiful view of the city. Then we went to the Jagalchi fish market, the largest in the country, where all sorts of interesting sea creatures could be found. An octopus did not find its bowl so inviting and tried to escape across the street. He was promptly caught in the head by the fishmonger, who had noticed the attempt to break out, and was sent back by return post. 🙈

Station no. 3 was the beautiful 14th century temple complex Haedong Yonggungsa on the rugged coast of Busan, where we stayed for about 1.5 hours before we went to the beach to cool off. The temple complex is one of the most beautiful, if not the most beautiful, in South Korea. At the entrance we were greeted by the 12 zodiac figures of the Asian stone horoscope. Through a portal and a tunnel, down a few steps and the temple complex with 2 golden Buddha statues, the eight-tier pagoda, the wishing well and Daengjeon main temple, etc. gives a view of the sea. Some of us jumped into the same thing later when we stopped at the beach.

The last destination of the day: a large outlet shopping center, where you can spend a full day without any problems. We must have seen that too, which is why we persuaded Master Pyo to make this unscheduled stop.

Back at the university shortly before 10:00 p.m., there was still enough time for a game of table tennis and a small beer
