I went on an overnight trip to Daegu, and I took pictures of three things . . . I could have taken more, but I am already behind on Tokyo trip stuff, so I really did not want to go through 100+ pictures, so I limited myself to just the pictures below.
This was my hotel room at Eldis Regent Hotel. Great location. It was near Banweoldang Station, the only station in Daegu that connects the two subway lines, and it near downtown. I like my room. The size was perfect. One problem. The website says two bottles of water and toothbrush/toothpaste/razor are part of the amenities. Nope. Only one bottle of water is free, and the other stuff was in this 3,000 won ($2.80) shower kit. But other than that, I still like this hotel. A bit pricey (90,000 won for one night), but worth the money.
This royal milk tea, cheesecake, and blackberry cheesecake were all great. And the price was fabulous! It was only 7,500 won ($7.30) for the entire thing. In Seoul, these three things would cost at least 15,000 won ($14.80), and it might not even taste good. But the place we had it was not only good, but also cheap! I am jealous of Daegu’s prices now!
Meet my new phone, San-san. This is the LG-LU3000 model, also known as LG Optimus Mach. I’ve been wanting a smartphone for a while now, and I got it in Daegu of all places. All the cellphone places I’ve been to in Seoul were not helpful with me, but the guy in Daegu was truly a magnificent soul. He spent three hours (hence why I named the phone San-san XD) calling people and getting people to deliver stuff for this phone. Thanks to him, I can now delete iTunes and QuickTime off Provo. NO MORE APPLE FOR ME!
As for the actual phone, I like it! So much better than my old phone, and again — NO MORE APPLE!!! Hurrah for Android!
