22 일째 – tiny Gems in Gyeongsan – Anheungsa 안흥사

Ok now I’m just pushing it … after asking many people about any travel places in Gyeongsan and receiving a frown look on the face, I went out to find my own special Gyeongsan.

Since I prefer to spend my weekend time in Daegu, I decided to explore via my morning jogs.  I found a temple not far from where I live …

I think it is just a regular temple because I can’t find anything interesting about this temple on the internet (but it could be in Korean and I can’t read it).

When I got there, it looked a bit … ordinary … but there is a set of stairs and I am totally the person that follows these unknown paths as long as it doesn’t look too sketchy.

I found a temple at the back with monks inside meditating.  The front was the school but the back is the temple itself.

The stairs coming down the from the temple had a nice feel to it too!

Next to the temple is the Gyeongsan Stadium! I didn’t even know there was a stadium in Gyeongsan LOL…

Part of the stadium is locked so this is as far as I can go .. but we can see the tracks and the seats.

There are a lot of birds here too… Those spots are all birds .. it is a bit freaky …

That night, I also meet up with a friend that I haven’t seen in three years.  We met back in Vancouver right after I came back from Taiwan.  She apparently goes to the same school as me … except she is a real student.

She brought me to eat Japanese fusion food in a restaurant located on the second floor.  I am surprised anyone can find restaurants on the second floor but I do find it they are cozier (and usually fewer people).

After dinner, we went to a cafe… I tried to make it a point to remember where this cafe is but I have forgotten … sadly … It was really quiet, especially since all the students are now out on holidays 🙂

That was the end of Gyeongsan Exploration for the day.

December 22, 2016. Done.
