Friday 15th April, 2011
Today was like any other day in Changwon. The weather was beautiful, the birds were singing, the cherry blossoms are changing, Life's great.
I just thought I'd go for a bike ride around the city and get some lunch along the way. This morning I confirmed all our booking details for Spain. We have our accommodation in Madrid and Barcelona all booked. We have our tickets to see a bull fight booked. I can't wait!! We just have to organise our care hire once we decide to leave Barcelona and drive back to Madrid. We are hoping to stop at Zaragoza on the way back and perhaps some of the other little towns inbetween.
Today would be a perfect day to take some photos of the landmarks around the city. So I went to the Basketball Stadium, which is home to the Changwon Sakers. I also took photos of the giant round-a-about, and some art displays at The City7
Fridays always go quick and soon enough Daniel was back home. We started getting ready to go out to dinner to the local IP Bar. It's the place to be, either there, or The Westin or O'Brien's Bar.
Daniel ordered the Burrito's and I thought I'd try something new, so I opted for the Seafood Spaghetti. Last time I was here I had their signature Chicken Salad and it was absolutely DIVINE!
The food takes a while to be served, especially if it's a busy night. In fact, One time, they got so busy, they got confused with the orders and totally forgot about Daniel's meal! They felt so bad about it, they gave us a free drink and apologised. They know how to take care of their customers.
I was so surprised when I got my meal. The plate was massive and smelt sooooo good. I was really looking forward to this. Daniel's burrito was good too, but it's usually quite spicy and I don't like spicy food, so I don't usually order it.
There was noone from work at the IP Bar, so we decided to go downstairs to the Pub Garage (pronounced- Pub Garag-ie) and everyone from work was there! I had a feeling it was going to be a late night...
I got talking to alot of Daniel's work mates and they're all really nice guys. Alot of them have been doing this line of work for years and had some really interesting stories to tell. I also got talking to Joy, the manager of Pub Garagie. She speaks English well and has been working here for a while. She asked me about my nails, because earlier in the day, I put gems on them, and before you knew it, she was inviting me to go to her house for lunch on Sunday with Hansy and Dick (from Daniel's work) I said- 'Alright! Sounds like fun' and proceeded to give her the details of the hotel so she could ring me as I don't have a phone. I really didn't think anything of it, as our conversation got interrupted with jager shots and more random conversations.
Don't ask me what time we left, or how we got home- I have no recollection of this. All I know is that I woke up around 2.30am not feeling too great. You can just imagine what kind of night I had. Unfortunately Daniel had to work the next day, but he was feeling fine. I on the other hand, was grouchy, due to my broken sleep and I was nursing a hangover. I managed to sleep most of the day and watch reruns of our favourite show at the moment- Pawn Stars, which is about a family run Pawn Shop in Las Vegas and people bring in all sorts of things to be pawned or sold. It's such a good show and I totally recommend it. My favourite is Chumlee. He is this chubby, not too bright, worker at the shop and everyone makes fun of him. ahhhh Chumlee
In the evening, we headed out to Busan for a night out
