Lara and I spent a fab 3 days in Busan! We had many interesting meals: traditional Korean dinner, street food, weird brown eggs, and bad "Mexican"! I drug Lara kicking and screaming through Shinsegae, the largest mall in the world, we visited the amazing Yonggungsa Temple near the outskirts of the city, I did Natarajasana everywhere I could, and we stayed at an awesome "Love Motel", 4 stars by US standards, for $73 per night!
We were swept along with the tide of mainly Korean tourists at Haeundae Beach, watching families play traditional New Year's games in the sand, in traditional costume. Heck we even got to witness a beach volleyball game with many of the men in butt-free jockeys--(one of my fav sights on the trip he he! We luxuriated in the boiling saunas and whirlpools of Vesta Spa, and marveled at the variegated architecture of the city.
We starved, we overate, we laughed loud and whined a little. It was a great weekend with lots of memories captured below!
