There's something magical, or maybe just mysterious, about my neighborhood, after dark! I grabbed my camera and took a couple shots around my apartment a couple nights ago.
Welcome to my neighborhood.
We don't have drive-through restaurants here. Instead, we have walk-up mom and pop Korean style joints!
There's a noraebang (karaoke place) on EVERY street near my apartment.
On my tiny street alone, there are 4!
How'd you like to live down that alleyway!?
This is the main street that I walk up and down every time I take a bus or the subway somewhere!
I even have a beautiful view of Yeongdo Bridge and Busan Tower from my neighborhood. This isn't the greatest picture, but I wanted to include it because I think it's a beautiful sight!
There are some scandalous areas on the island, and I happen to live right smack dab in the middle of one of them! You've heard me talk about the "prossy (prostitute) van" that comes and drops off women to
serve drinks strip at the karaoke bars across and next to my apartment every night. With that said, it's not uncommon to see posters like these taped up on the walls.
I love that there are ALWAYS people out and about in Korea!
This is one of the 4 Noreabang's / massage parlors on my street.
Old Korean women roll these gigantic seafood carts down the street and set up their restaurant along the harbor as soon as the sun goes down! I'm ashamed to say that this area is less than a minute walk from our apartment and we've never eaten at one! I'm gonna make it a point to eat here before we leave!
... and this is the street I walk down, everyday, to get to work in the morning!
That's it for the night time tour of my neighborhood! Hope you enjoyed it!
