28 일째 – Kyong San Hyang Gyo 慶山鄕校/경산향교 & Mexican-Korean Fusion Food

Morning of the 28th, I decided to check out the old houses I spotted when I visited the temple.  It is located just across from the Gyeongsan Stadium and on high grounds, surrounded by apartments.

The day was really pretty, the lake was shining against the sun.

The houses are located on top of a 섬터, which are basically terraces for farming.  It seems a little unkempt, so I was nervous about going there.  What if the tents were lived by actual people!?

There is a very small incline to get to this place.

I took a photo of the explanation: these Confucious academies were built in 1390 during the Koryo Dynasty in Ok Gyo Dong and were heavily damaged in 1592 during the Japanese invasion.  It was moved to Sin Gyo-Dong in 1681 but constrution of a new primary school meant some of the buildings were demolished.

Finally, the buildings were relocated to here in 1997.  It is opened twice a year in February and August for sacrificial rites for 5 saints and 22 sages.

That means it wasn’t opened today.  However, you can follow the path up and see the district from above.

Night time rolls around and I headed to Daegu’s Dongseongro again to meet my language exchange partner.  We went to eat Mexican-Korean fusion food at Vasco because I had a huge craving for Mexican food.

Similar to the ones back home, they give you complimentary nachos and salsa!!

We had Chicken teriyaki taco and Bulgolgi Quesadilla!

I had to admit, it was a bit pricy.  Most of the items were over 10,000 WON.  The final billing for this was 22,000, which I can eat pretty well back in Vancouver for a bigger portion.

Apprently, there is a coffee street at Dongseongro, where many coffee shops are located (not that there isn’t enough coffee shops already).  The Mexican-Korean fusion place is also on the coffee steet.

Therefore, for studying, we went to the coffee shop next door.  It was 5000-6000 won per a cup but they have coffee and tea and a very nice romantic atmosphere … a little too dark for studying though.
