So I’ve spent the better portion of this morning sitting in a coffee shop playing online when I would love nothing more than to be exploring this great city. Since my arrival, Seoul has alternated between oppressive heat and humidity and pissing down rain. I just looked at the 10-day forecast and they’re predicting rain and humidity every day.
Yesterday, I went out with two fellow teachers at Korea Poly School, Sarah from Minnesota and Tobye from NYC (there was Dallas, from Phoenix; Cleveland – he was from Detroit; and Tex… well, I don’t remember where Tex come from).
We had lunch at a Dak Kalbi joint. After lunch, Sarah, Sydney and I headed over to Olympic Park. It was a nice walk, despite getting rained on toward the end. And I was able to play fetch with Syd for approximately 2 minutes before being told to stop by a cop. Speaking of the pup, I think I’m going to get back to the apartment, practice some Korean, and eat some lunch.
