Busan - Haedong Yonggungsa

KTX 300 kmp/hr fast train, took us to Busan for the day, in the south of South Korea. 2.5 hours each way, I slept the whole time, there and back. Spent the day on the hop on hop off bus, Red and Blue Line.  I particularly wanted to visit the Buddhist Temple on the side of the cliff.
Seoul Station at 6am
 "Boy's Toys"

 Interesting fencing, apparently it is advertising panels.
 Busan is on the water, very elite area.

 Walking along the water's edge towards the temple,
past the stone tower tributes to the deceased overlooking the water.
 Entering the area over the bridge.
Laden up with cameras and bag, there has to be an easier way to carry things.
