Okay, one more beach post before moving on... I made my first trip to Busan, the second largest largest city in South Korea and on the southern coast of the country. I was lucky enough to stay at Haeundea Beach, a very popular tourist location. But this was a business trip, so not so much time for beach fun. Below is a new art installation, the signs around it said it was installed so you will a nice place to take photos.This is the beach looking west, it is the off season but many people still enjoy walking around at night. Kids were shooting off fireworks too.I had time to walk around a little bit the morning I was returning to Japan (Busan is 1.5 hour flight from Nagoya). Here is another view looking east, there are a bunch of restaurants over there.One funny thing in Korea, there is no place to park. The two cars below are just parked in the middle of the street, which makes a problem if you need to pass another car through there or something. But there is a solution.On the dash of the car is the drivers phone number. You can call the driver and he or she will come out and move their car for you... Of course this is an issue if you can't speak Korean.
