Korea (V). Daegu

After visiting Suwon, I got in a train Southbound to Daegu, a large city quite in the South of the country. The most famous sight there is a traditional herb market. It was a Sunday and Korea is a country in which at least half the people are catholic!! Therefore, it was mostly closed... I could only see a couple of shops open...

There was a street which specialized in rice cakes and it was quite interesting. There were rice cakes with all possible shapes and colors!

Back to the main street, the most outstanding medicines in the herb market where deer antlers and ginseng roots. The first would probably be illegal in any other country. The second were quite creepy... but interesting!
