68/69/70/71/72 일째 – Gyeongsan & Daegu Misadventures

February 6, 2017 – Day 68 – Daegu

It is the start of another week!! I also signed up for a Barista Class with SangSang University, which is supported by KT&T, the tobacco company.  In Korea, there are many cheap classes brought to you by large corporeations such as Homeplus, YMCA etc …

The class was all the way across town (about an hour away by bus) and … OMG, I think I am too confident in my abilities because I don’t understand a single word the teacher was saying at all!!! I don’t think I can cut it as a barista. Now, every Monday I will feel very nervous and insecure.

February 7th, 2017 – Day 69 – Gyongsan

I told one of the people working with Sangsang that I can’t go to this cocktail class on Tuesday because it is too difficult and too far.  Instead, I stayed behind and ate at the 3900 won restaurant across the street from Yeungnam 🙂

February 8, 2017 – Day 70 – Daegu 

Despite having a quiz on Friday, our class was super chill!  It was actually fun!  We learned about Gyeongju’s attractions and then made paper origami!

After class, my friend and I went to Daegu!  On the metro, we found a place called Tokyo Dining, which is a Japanese restaurant!  It was in a small alley and it took a while to find.  However, we were shocked to find so many people inside … we actually had to wait for seats.  We ordered a salad and tonkatsu.  Both my friend and I liked the salad more … I think we really miss the vegetables.

We accidentally met up with my friend’s friend!  She works here as a waitress and her Korean is perfect!  She already graduated from Yeungnam language institute with a level 6.

More shopping ensues and in the end, we just rested at a coffee shop called T class.  The coffee was a little bit expensive, in fact, the price of one drink was similar to the cake … However, the atmosphere was really nice and I got to finish my presentation for Friday.

February 9, 2017 – Day 71 – Gyeongsan

So I changed the date and did the cocktail class on Thursday instead!  I don’t think it was a good idea… Korean hs not improved in two days … I was so nervous about the class that I didn’t take any photos … just the food I ate before class.  I didn’t have the name written down fo the nth time.  However, it was next to the D3 Cafe shop and the restaurant is almost an one-man show.  He takes your order, make the food and takes the money after.  The restaurant has a nice western feel to it too.

February 10, 2017 – Day 72 – Daegu Suseongmot

I was going to meet with a caligraphy classmate but I can’t write Korean so I said let’s meet another day inside of a little later.  In any case, my friend and I (yes, I brought a friend!) went to eat at a very cheap place in Beomeo Station!  It only costs 5000 won for an entire set (kimbap and Tteokbokk) !  It is a Kimbap place place just across fom Hanssim.

… then we went to Suseongmot to somehow the Korean person I meet somehow got my message and came by to Suseongmot. We settled at Angel-in-us and just talked … it was cold and windy but we made an appointment to go to Palgonsan together the next day!
