Kiwi in Korea 13 - would you like some tiger testes with that
Went to Daegu today. It utterly pissed down - thankfully every corner shop in Korea sells umbrellas. I went to the Medicinal Markets, which are not really markets but lots of shops selling traditional Korean medicine. It was interesting, especially seeing the velvet and antlers as my father used to export velvet (he was a deer farmer) to Korea. There is also a exihibtion hall (no camera flash allowed) so no photos. It was mainly full of botantical samples but included a stuffed bear, fur seal, tiger, leopard, boar, not to mention flying geckos, snakes, sea horses etc on display. It was interesting - I am a plant nerd and have had an interest in herbology for about 20 years.
Downstairs was the wholesale warehouse. I toured the area with a French woman I met at the large map in the subway station (I was trying to figure out which exit to take and she was trying to figure out how to get there). Here are some shots of the warehouse.
box of thorns anyone?
After strolling the street to the entrance gate (above) it was time to check out Rice Cake St, there were some really interesting creations
but we decided on pajeon (pancake) for lunch. This lady was lovely and her pajeon is yummy, especially dipped in the sauce provided.
After lunch we went our seperate ways and I went book shopping, so now I have some good books to last me for awhile (War and Peace, The Count of Monte Christo, Sense and Sensiblity, The Rape of Nanking, The Aquariums of Pyeongyang and A single shard (which is actually children's literature - hehe))
