Honestly it wasn't very special. Yea, we had a few days off from class which was great, and yea, stuff were closed like normally for holidays, but there was no, festivities you know? At least I didn't really get to see any, so it didn't feel very special. Regardless, time off means time for other things.
Like more sightseeing.
I've been in Daegu for half a year now, but obviously there is still a lot to see and explore in the city if you went out and searched for it. So over the break me and some of my friends went to see more of the city. The first stop we went to was to Eworld, an amusement park in Daegu.
It was ok. Like it honestly wasn't very exciting. It was small and a lot of the rides and attractions are for kids, so there really wasn't much to see imo. There was a mini zoo which was kinda cool, but aside from that the attractions weren't very attractive.
There were birds above the mesh too. No idea how they got there.
There were some festivities going on in the park though. For example they had some traditional games and a tent set up for you to make some fortune bringing stuff. So we did that and it was kinda cool to do.
Afterwards we went to walk around Duryu Park and we managed to find the Colorful Daegu sign. For some reason the slogan for Daegu is Colorful Daegu, which I have no idea what it means. But that's a thing.
Not very colourful when the trees have no leaves though.
Since the cafeteria is also closed for the shutdown period, my friend decided to cook some Mexican food for us that night for dinner. We had like a dozen people jammed into a small room and had some authentic Mexican food, which was really nice. A really good change of pace from typical Korean food.
The following day was more sightseeing. Again with some friends we went to a park (which had another zoo), some museums and traditional streets downtown, and then finished it off with a trip to Suseong Lake, a man-made lake.
They had an airplane cafe there.
The lake itself was ok. It's kinda off to the side in city a bit and near some mountains, so scenery wise it's ok. The lake itself is nothing special though. The highlight of that leg of the trip was definitely the airplane cafe. They pretty much just cleared out a plane and turned it into a cafe.
The rest of the weekend was mostly just video games and attempting to study. I have another level test on Friday which I'm not really prepared for. We went through the book fairly quickly so there's a lot of grammar and vocab I should review.
Plus I think I have to move soon so I'll be rid of this awful shower room.
Well, I dreaded February and now it's almost over. The final stretch really. Once March hits at least the atmosphere will be better. Less class, more food options, more students. I really need to work harder on my Korean though.
