Scenes from a coffee shop

The village of Anmok in the city of Gangneung was/is a small fishing village. Before moving to Gangneung I had heard of the village’s ‘coffee street’. Every fish restaurant along the beach road had one or two coffee vending machines and this, along with the fresh sashimi, was the village’s claim to fame.
Fast forward ten or more years to the present and the village is now a long row of raw fish restaurants (sashimi sounds much better, doesn’t it?) and corporate chain coffee shops. There’s also a new marina and in the marina building there is a coffee shop on the top floor. Some time ago I went up there with a couple of friends and while they drank coffee I made a few photos.

The view towards the beach road with all the coffee shops, restaurants, and hotels. Behind the beach road are a maze of alleys where the houses and walls probably haven’t changed in many decades.

The coffee shop has a balcony where the smokers congregate and ruin the balcony for everyone else. Luckily, it was raining on the day I was there and the smokers had to suffer inside the coffee shop.
