On the way from Tongyeong to Yeosu, I decided to transfer from expres bus to a train at Jinju.
Few hours of free time allowed me to visit the Jinju Castle and its national museum.
I didn't really expect much and didn't get much either.
I did meet two interesting people in Jinju though. I met a guy named Luke from San Francisco who's been in Jinju for a week and about to start his work as an English teacher. He was looking to get some information brochures about traveling to Seoul and Busan at the train station. I know staying in a small city would be quiet a challenge for a foreigner but I hope he gets through it well.
Another person was a railroad officer who took care of my complicated ticket exchange situation. He was new at the job and needed to call others to find out how to deal with my special case (changing the departure date of KTX that had special rate for the specific date). I was quiet grateful for his effort and the sympathy. When I visited him again in half an hour with two drinks, he was gone but I told another officer to give the drink to him. I didn't get to see him again but I'm sure he happy about it.
