BNL & touring around Busan

:

A much needed weekend. Can’t believe its Sunday already.

Friday night after Taekwondo, Master Jun and I went to Club Fabric for the highly anticipated Busan Night Live. We were later joined by Chad and HyeSung. It was a essentially a sketch comedy show based off of short skits like Saturday Night Live and put on by a group of Busan foreigners. Unfortunately I was unable to see the full thing as I had to leave shortly into the second half, but the first half was really really entertaining. After a Lady Gaga-cross dresser danced his way onto stage to speak out “Live from Busan, its Busan night live!” the laughs just kept coming. The routines were about all sorts of things from gynaecologists , to Korean sparkly ties (my fav. skit), Korean help phones and an American video gamer who thinks he can used his video game skills to join the army. It was really well done and I thought a good effort by all involved.

Welcome to Busan Rosie and Anthony!

Saturday I headed out to meet Rosie and Anthony, who are a couple from Niagara Falls who recently moved to Busan. We have a mutual friend who got us in touch and I’ve been trying to help them if they had any questions leading up to coming to Korea. Much like how Aaron gave me a tour when I first arrived, I wanted to pay it forward and give them a small tour of the city. We started in Nampodong, went to Jagalchi Fish Market and we then met up with Matt for lunch. After visiting my friend JiSung at Lotte Mart, we headed out to Gwangalli beach as it was such a beautiful day. After strolling along the sand we stopped in at a new place called Gusto, for coffee/tea etc. They were giving out free coffee’s and their marketing worked. It was a pretty cool place! HyeSung came over later in evening for a guitar lesson, which I think was reasonably successful. I forgot how hard it was to learn the guitar, especially how hard it is on your fingers. But it was fun none-the less!

In other, unrelated news, I just finished reading the book “Sahara” by Michael Palin. Its basically his travel journal from when he toured around the Sahara dessert for 99 days. Its a good read if anybody is interested in being an armchair traveller. He is a former writer for Monty Python so it is funny as well.

I’m enjoying a very lazy Sunday, too bad its not a long weekend.
