Capturing the mundane to create interesting stories

Street of Daegu

“Hi! Welcome to downtown of Daegu…”, or so I think they would say…

On the third (and last) night at Daegu, we went to downtown by bus.

Prior to our trip, I’ve read an article of how wild the bus drivers are. I thought it won’t be worse than bus drivers in Jakarta.

I was right; they are not worse — but only a level away :D… Spoiled by Japanese bus drivers, I felt a little surprise with all the swirls and sudden sharp turns.

All in all, it’s still okay.

We drop-off somewhere downtown and walk around the Seomun Market, heading to Daegu Station. I took some random photos along the way.

The street reminds me of Indonesia — in particular Jakarta and Bandung.

Fruit seller. There are more seller up ahead (not just fruit seller), but I was too busy looking that I forgot to take pictures :D…

There are a lot of underground crossings which also serve as underground marketplace.

Local street food — not sure what it was.

Street of blankets and comfy pillows.

Shops were already closed… time to go home.

    • Well, kind of… it’s downtown :D.
      Perhaps it is confusing due to how I presented the photos here? I apologize for that :D…
