Lately, I have been rather remiss in my posting duties.
There has been many interesting and shiny things in my new home, so many things that I have had little time to sit and write.

Things like Soju. (A Korean drink similar to Vodka, but without the good flavor.)

Things like random trips to the grocery store. (Where a simple shopping trip requires a phrase book at minimum, a translator if you are going for more advanced menu.)

Things like spending too much time at the local pub. (Where we drink Korean beer and play drinking games from a variety of different countries and cultures.)

Things like hitting the gym. (As often as possible due to the increased consumption of beer related calories.)

Things like scampering through the near-by towns, staring starry-eyed at the bright lights. (Neon is very popular here.)

Things like attempting to learn a bit of Korean. (Hard, hard, double hard.)

Things like teaching. (I do have a job here, you know!)

I have been in Korea for 2 weeks as of today. I am actually starting to feel comfortable in my job, knowing the how’s and why’s, what’s and who’s. Knowing what I am to be teaching. Knowing where I am to be from one moment to the next.
Actually knowing how to cook the required lessons.

I have many stories to tell and as soon as I have the time I will delve into every little detail. But I will leave you with one final thought.

Rumor has it that soju has formaldehyde as one of its many enjoyable ingredients. Slowly, weekend by weekend, I am preserving my liver. At this rate, my liver will survive a nuclear holocaust!

When do we get to see pics????
