Korea Daegu Monorail

9 March 2015

Random nonsense

The old market and new monorail of Daegu

After returning from recovery mountain, I decided to give my spa bath a whirl.
It seemed to have lots of jets and something that makes bubbles that you have to sit on.
So I fill up the path, gently lower myself in, and press the button.
Two of the jets in the spa were somehow angled upwards, which fired water across the bathroom. Amused at the situation, I go to turn it off, no such luck.
About 9 button presses later whilst trying to block the offending jets with various body parts, I managed to calm the raging beast.

Next up, I thought I might relax with a cup of green tea, using my in room boiling water dispenser and filter thing, one of many features of my fine room.
The hotel has kindly provided me with a paper cup, the exact same kind they might give you at the dentist to rinse with.
Not to worry, I dont really like green tea much, so a small cup will be fine. I proceed to fill the cup from the hot water, its so hot that I have to put it down immediately, upon which the bottom of the cup dissolved, and boiling water washed across my plastic wooden floor.

Oh well, apparently its going to be freezing cold tomorrow, with strong winds, maybe I cant go to a mountain. A shame as I have 2 more near Daegu I would have liked to conquer, and subsequently post boring photos of.

Still on the peasent meals to compensate for my sunscreen purchase. I ordered omurice, if you dont know what that is, sorry I cant help.
So it looked like omurice in the plastic sculpture, but the woman making it was not skilled in the art of folding rice inside an omlette. So I got some rice with an egg on top, and a hamburger pattie. It was actually very nice though! and CHEAP!

If I was here in a couple of weeks time, the monorail would be running. Metro line 3 for Daegu. It is so close to being operational that the monorails are doing test laps to see if they smash into each other on corners etc.
Australians might be confused, as its a monorail but theres 2 tracks. Thats because theres one track for each direction.
There is only one monorail left in Australia to my knowledge, at Seaworld, but much like the Sydney one thats now fallen down, its just one track which goes around in a pointless circle.


Korea-Daegu-Monorail - Huge bones. Seriously 6 foot high. I dont know what they came out of. Fresh!

I hung out in the line for a while despite not wanting a waffle. I just like to experience the hell out of the line.
