Wandering around Busan University area

On Monday afternoon I found I had a couple of free hours to while away, near Busan University. IMG_1111The streets round about had a definite studenty vibe, with interesting side streets with a huge variety of shops and food vendors.

I found a Watsons, which is very similar to the Singapore shops, with a couple of odd products. Is this to clear pores on a baby’s nose or to make your skin looks like a baby’s? Either way you buy one and get one free!

One fun thing that I saw: a dog with hair died pink!

IMG_1105On the drive back to Ulsan, you travel along the Asian Highway 6, if you stayed on this road you could go all the way from Busan, up into North Korea, right the way across Russia (on the Trans-Siberian highway) and ending up in Belarus.

There is a good view of a large golden statue, I am not up to speed on my religious statues so can’t say which one this is.

    And if you then turned left down Highway 8 you’d get to us! Fancy a visit to see how it’s changed??
