Dinner was at the ‘Healing Kitchen’, a farmhouse style restaurant with a garden area brandishing twinkling fairy lights and a wooden bench in front of a heart shaped stencil. A weird Vegan/Romantic coagulate vibe but once inside, the restaurant swung back to being instead quaint and pretty in pastel, as was reminiscent of the restaurants we visited in Seoul.

Food was mixed. The mushroom starter was shared amongst us and I wasn’t crazy on it, but I very much enjoyed my spicy tomato pasta (though, like all Korean food, anticipate a strong kick of flavour).

Our next stop was a return to Anapji Pond; Anna and her parents were keen to take us back but we weren’t initially to sure why.
And then we arrived to this:
I know right- don’t you just want some club anthems? Disco lights illuminating the pond.
And that wasn’t all:
So Anna and I wanted to express how we felt… :
Roaming away from the pond, coloured lights are still illuminating certain areas of vegetation:
And then there was time for one last shadow photo:

Because the next morning, three would go back to two and my travel companion and I were about to experience the biggest culture shock to date (for me anyway, it’s unfair to second guess how he felt).
Bye bye Gyeonju, Daegu and South Korea. And hello Beijing, China!
