Museum entry

Bus leaving at 9:30...bought tickets day before but open seating so we'll try to get there & in line early. Early was 8:30 so we waited an hour for bus but I was happy...the #79 bus only comes by every 20-30 minutes so had we just missed it we'd have no time for getting up front in line for best seats.

We arrived in Gyeongju at 1:00 but no info booth or any info st the station, not even a pay phone. With the LP in hand Bon followed the map the short 15 min walk to Nahbi GH which turned out to be indeed closed, defunct, no longer functioning just as Mr Lee had said. Bon talked to several people who were all very helpful, one even walked 2 blocks with us to where she thought owners lived...not! Then a young gal who spoke some English stepped in and she spoke with Bon about possibilities coming up with a Guest house just 2 blocks away, Dream Guesthouse. Lee, the house fellow signed us up for rooms
