The school I'm working for seems great. Everyone has been incredibly nice and genuinely is trying to make sure my fellow teachers and I are as successful as possible. This is not always the case at private institutes in Korea. All the new teachers are here in Seoul for orientation/training for a few weeks before we all head out to our actual schools throughout Korea. I am most likely going to end up in Gwangju, but that could change.
The food has been so good. This is something that I read on nearly ever blog I read before I came over here, but now that I've got a week of it in me, I can personally attest to this fact. The school I work for is vegetarian and so 90% of my meals have been as well, and so far this has not been an issue. However, the hibachi-style all you can eat restaurant I went to was simply amazing, and $10.50. Kimchi is even growing on me.
I've been doing quite a bit of sight seeing since I got here. I feel a little bit like I'm just on vacation since I haven't settled into a full time job yet. I've been to a couple different palaces and ridden the subway all over just trying to get lost.
