Dirty South Part 2: District Gay/ Texas Street

  We'd actually walked through this area during the day once. It was pretty heterosexual fora back alley aside from a few signs that wouldn't be obviously gay to Koreans. There weren't any guys trying to hustle or directions to the nearest glory hole.

The first bar of the night was Banana. We heard this place gives you a banana with each drink and I find that to be hilarious. Cum took a deep breath and opened the door. I'll be damned if it wasn't the classiest gay bar I've ever been in. Very well put together with tasteful art and a lacquer black color scheme. There was an aquarium with angel fish, dim lights and lasers, and somehow even the stripper pole on the bar seemed to fit. You could tell this bar drew a more sophisticated crowd, and not ten minutes after we sat down, they walked in. Two were businessmen who looked like they just got out of work, two looked like a couple, and the other three were a bit more flaming.

The bartender spoke very good, very gay English, and gave us a gay guide to not only Busan, but all of Korea. I was surprised at how many gay Karaokes, gay “one shot” (liquor) bars, gay Soju bars, gay DVD rooms (hook up spots), and gay bathhouses they managed to cram into this barren looking back alley.

Tie Dyed Shorts by Melissa

On The Constance Chronicles

I decided to try sprucing up some shorts I had in my closet. Living in Korea is temporary so making sure you keep the amount of clothing you have to a reasonable amount is essential for easy packing when it’s time to go back home. I buy most of my stuff at the 1,000 won (one dollar) markets they have in Busan and Seoul. I grabbed three pairs of boring shorts and started a project at 2am.

I used hair ties, silly bands, and random ribbon in my apt to tie off the shorts. I folded them mostly in a fan style.. i wanted to create vertical stripes down the shorts.

I’m left with the gay blair witch project on my floor.
