86 일째 – Daegu 대구 – The ARC (디아크)

The last Friday in Daegu!  I realized that I haven’t done a lot of traveling around Daegu so on this Friday, I went to the Arc, which is on the southwest side of Daegu, very near Keimyong University.

Before that, I had breakfast with a friend 🙂  This was at Han’s Deli, it’s a very cheap franchise selling western food in Korea.  There is one at Dongseong-ro in Daegu.

After breakfast, we went to a cafe in Dongseongro called ‘In the Garden’.  I think it is fairly hidden but the inside of the Cafe as huge and comfortable.  The price was also fairly affordable being where it was.

After saying goodbye to my friend, I headed out to the ARC.   Rather than getting out at Daesil Station, I got off one station earlier because google map told me so and I can cut through roads and streams.  Still, I was super excited when I saw the Arc from a distance.

… 30 minutes later, I had to walk back because I was on the wrong side and there were nothing for me to cross to get to the other side 😦  I’m not smart enough to figure out how to get myself across the stream as google suggested (**NO!!!)

Finally arrived at the ARC! It stands for Architecture of River Culture and Artistry of River Culture and it has a water theme to it.  The first floor is in fact about water.  Admission is free.

The first and second floor also has some artwork … it’s quite nice actually, especially the second floor.

The third floor has a Caffee Pascucci!  My cake and latte cost a total of 10,000 won.

Outside of the Arc! … and the slow walk back…

Rather than going home, I had the brilliant idea of trying to find the Dalseong Wetlands but as like the getting to the Arc, there was no connecting road it.  I walked 40 minutes through tech companies, warehouses, factories, and car shops and in the end I only ended up at a park …

… at least I got to see the sunset 😦

Slightly depressed over this misadventure, I went to hof with friends and had soju.
