Korea Busan Department Store Barbecue

16 March 2015

Barbecue zoo

Department store roof top zoo

My legs are stuffed from todays hike, they feel fantastic, going up stairs 2 at a time I can just get to the top of the subway exit before total muscle failure.
Awesome.

So I thought I better give them a rest due to more mountains to come in other locations. I headed to a familiar part of town for dinner, and then never left the Lotte department store.
The roof area afforded some great views of the ports and part of the city. So I took some more boring panoramas at dusk.
There is also a rather sad zoo, the other day their competitor, Shinsagae had a fake zoo with dinosaurs, Lotte decided to have some farm animals, birds, snakes and lizards, as well as a starbucks, and an art gallery, all on their roof.

I still dont really know how to get to my destination tomorrow, go to the bus station, hope its the right one, try to explain the city I want to go to, hope I can get a seat.
Most Korean cities have multiple bus terminals, generally, they dont all have buses going to all locations, you have to go to the right one. Generally they are on the edge of the city to keep the buses out of the city, generally.
I am dubious that I want to head west but apparently I should go to the north bus station, not the west bus station.
Then when I get to Gwangju, it could arrive at a bus station far from the subway, and lugging my bag on a bus wont be too much fun.
Its all part of the adventure.

So here is a photo of the tower on its own. You can pay to go up it if you want. Alternatively you can come to the roof top zoo of the Lotte department store for free and be just about the only person up there.


Korea-Busan-Department Store-Barbecue - Left to right we have sheep, deer, baby pig. But they were all hiding in their stalls. All these animals are served in the food court 2 floors below.

Korea-Busan-Department Store-Barbecue - For dinner, I finally had Korean bbq. But then the girl insisted on cooking it for me. I feel as though I pay a premium for getting to cook it myself.

Fairly certain she assumed I did not know what to do.
Also, it was very plain and boring, the side dishes were more flavoursome. A new one on me, there is a selection of potatoes in the small brown bowl.


Korea-Busan-Department Store-Barbecue - Next I went and hung out at the Gundam Base Satellite store.
