Stories? Oh there are so many! I've survived three "close" calls with North Korea. Not too much to say about that, no one is ever worried. I received my TEFL certificate. Found myself a girlfriend and have been dating her for the last two years.
So, that has been going well, with its ups and downs. Learning how to adapt to her culture and trying and failing to speak Korean has had a bit of a wearing on the relationship at times. I do know some Korean, but not nearly enough to hold a conversation. I've met her family and her extended family. The extended for the first time this past Chuseok. Chuseok is the Korean harvest festival. So, think of it as Korean Thanksgiving, but this year we had five days off; so that kicks major ass.
The culture is very different from Canada or America. Lots more focus on family and what not over here. And on business. Lots of people, like the man I tutor are only learning English to get promotions within a company. Phone service here is way, way, better. Plans are easier to get into and out of, at least if you are Korean. They tend to be wary of foreigners as we come and go quickly.
I've done some traveling around the country, but not to anywhere else in Asia yet. This country is incredibly mountainous. Just, mountains everywhere. Where I live is in a valley and same with I play baseball on Saturday. I take in quite a few hockey games here. Asia has its own league and one of the best teams in the league is close to my home.
All in all, good country. Not going home.
