Around Korea in 5 days- Day 4 Sachen to Gwangju 광주

:

Day four ended up being the easiest day of them all. The scenery was beautiful along the coast. I hit a big park, with tons of cool beaches. I checked out a temple and a dolmen site. I ended up in Mokpo by late afternoon. I checked out a bunch of museums. There were five museums all together in a place called culture town. I had heard that Mokpo was a place with lots of Korean gangsters. My brief ride through did not confirm this. I headed back inland to Gwangju. It is a fair size city with over a million people. I was looking out for motels, when I finally stopped in the downtown area. I was hungry. As I looked for a restaurant I realized I had found the main shopping district. I also found a cheap motel. It was a good score. I walked around the shopping district and found a restaurant. The lighting in the restaurant was very bright. I realized I was road dirty. The dirt from the road was catching up.

I was also getting a good tan. It always amazes me how dirt attracts itself to you when you travel. I was showering everyday and changing clothes regularly but I couldn’t escape the look of the kms accumulating up on me. It is nice to when you travel that people let that slide and still treat you well. I felt in the groove of travelling now. Too bad it was about to end the next day.
