More images of Gunsan, from exploring.
This is on the same street as my apartment. It is typical of some of the older buildings in my dong (area, mine being Naun-1 Dong).
The car may look familiar because this is still, relatively, the same shot. This is typical of the roads in my city. It is quite common for cars to be speeding past, have vehicles parked on the side and people honking while trying to get past in the other direction…add the ice and snow and pedestrians walking (the roads I use to get to work are all this wide), I’m surprised that I haven’t seen a single accident yet.
My guess is a preschool or Sunday school? It’s right beside a large church but across the street from what appears to be an elementary school and a middle school.
An abandoned game of soccer, in the snow (with a basketball).
To demonstrate that it was not just my street, here is a busier street with the same width restrictions. Note: further ahead, down this road you can see that people park on both sides of the street. I have, on more than one occasion, waited between cars for traffic to pass.
Local Oilbank employees clearing the sidewalk.
Impending fate, attempted escapes.
Off season for the local greenhouse.
I’m looking forward to these community gardens all sprouting. It seems like every planter and spare inch of ground in the city is dedicated to growing food. It’s pretty amazing.
