Headed over to Busanjin to explore the 400-year-old remains of a Japanese castle.
Found lots of walkers.
Found a couple of shrines. Got off the main path and followed the trail around the hill.Found Mōri Terumoto‘s fortress walls. Jinjiseong at the top of the hill in the Korean style of contruction. West Gate reconstruction (1974) in Korean style.
See Fortress Cats post.
school cancelled for 3 days because of mers.
at 3 i start a long bike ride around busan.
west to oncheoncheon.
up the creek i find men net casting on a pool of water.
i stop in pnu for lunch. i turn around and bike south to seomyeon. i cross to west busan, the industrial heart of the city.
i arrive at the banks of the nakdong around 7.
a little after 10 i pass a shop that makes plastic lucky pigs and other creatures in busanjin. they’re working late, perhaps trying to meet a deadline. i hear a machine somewhere in the shop. the machine makes rhythmic sounds as if breathing. with every exhalation out comes a new plastic toy. inside the shop i see a woman sitting on the floor surrounded by a thousand yellow plastic hearts. she is fixing heart-shape stickers on each plastic heart. handmade i suppose.
