I stayed at my friend’s place last night and in the morning, we head back out to Busan. We took the regular train so if we time it correctly, it would only be 20 minutes.
We arrived at Busan Station and just across from it is Chinatown! Interestingly, there were a lot of Russian, Kazakstan and Uzbekistan restaurants.
Actually, the purpose of today’s trip to Busan was to go to the Ebagu Crafts Workshop (이바구공작소). It is located in this area called ChoRang, which is another community built into the hillside of Busan.
On the way there, we had to climb the 168 Stairs which is almost six stories high!
Luckily for us, there is a free lift that takes people up to the top. Maximum capacity is 8 persons, so remember to line up …
What people had to do before:
The lazy bone in me, taking the lift with other people.
The lift we used .
The view from above is magnificent!
We have arrived at the Ebagu Crafts Workshop (이바구공작소). It costs 1000 won to dress like a high school student … LOL
It was the first time I wore school uniform! I wondered why the boy’s uniforms has spotted patterns…
We went outside to take pictures for a bit but we were called back due to the high amount of people waiting.
… ok, we had to give the uniforms back 😦
After, we went down the stairs …
.. . to eat a traditional lunch box. We had to shake it so it doesn’t stay on the metal box. Apparently, this simple kind of meal is common, even for kids growing up in the 80s! I had peanut butter and jam sandwiches 🙂
