My next post will not be from Busan! This has been (and could well continue to be) the longest stop on our travels but what an opportunity we’ve had staying with the Agit people.
This weekend was the opening night of a grafitti exhibition – all week now 21 artists from Korea, Japan and USA have been staying here, working non-stop in a cloud of aerosol fumes, to leave behind one of the most colourful buildings I have seen in a long time.
Early in the morning we all moved to Samyeon – another shopping and entertainment district – to continue the celebrations. These Korean party zones are always good fun; hundreds and hundreds of eating and drinking places mixed in with discos, video arcades, kareoke rooms, pool halls, baseball courts and more – all crammed next to each other on the roads, in tents on the sidewalk, gaps between buildings, other gaps behind those gaps and all the way up to the top floor of the buildings themselves.
For me, that’s the strangest bit, going from floor to floor in a glass elevator looking for the next bizarre establishment…
