Debrief, briefly

Back again after another nice and long week at school. Things have been pretty good in the ol’ Seoul and it seems time for an update. (I think I will post-pone the second half of my commute pictures, they’re kind of boring – at least I’m bored with them)

Perhaps the biggest new development is that tonight a Californian couple are coming to stay in my apartment. They are the newest teachers at Brighton, replacing the wonderful Canadian couple who leaves this coming week. This new couple might be staying with me as long as a week, or as short as three days. I pretty well have no idea what to expect, so I am just abuzz with excitement.

By the way, for all those Canada lovers out there reading my blog, Both Sean and Sara, the Canadians grew up in Ancaster, just outside of Hamilton, ON.

At any rate. I’ve been getting some nice logicstics things out of the way: I have my alien resident card, I cajoled my director into advancing my pay a little bit so that I could better take care of these incoming teachers. It seems to be working out well.

Fortunately for all of you out there who would like to see my apartment, It’s about to get a thorough cleaning in preparation for their arrival at 11pm tonight. So I’ll clean and take some pictures before then.

Okay! Sorry if the logistical stuff is mostly boring, but hey – boring is mostly life :)



  1. Well, I can’t say that I’m incredibly disappointed that you won’t be sharing part deux yet, but that’s because I don’t want to hurt your feelings. Have fun with the CA couple, hopefully, they’ll bring you some good USA cheer, and hopefully they get to stay for a while.
    And yes, I’m excited to see the rest of your appt, we could always do a roaming skype interview…


  2. I am anxiously awaiting the rest of the tour. Please don’t leave me hanging. :-)

  3. I was just catching up on your life-in-Korea blogging, and I realized that we just missed each other in Narita by 3 days…I flew through there (and had an 11 hour layover) on the 18th on my way home from a trip to Vietnam! How crazy is that!?! Anyways, I just thought that I would share that…keep blogging!

  4. Chris, where for art thou? I need to know about your boring logistical Korean life, how am I to know unless it is posted here?

  5. I’m with Char. When it comes to Korea, specifically your life in it, the boringer and logisticaler the better.

    Tineke and I reminisced about you at work today. It was one of my first times talking with her. She’s a delightful human being. You choose your friends well.

    I look forward to your continued adventures from The World of Tomorrow.
