The first one

Joe here. It has been a busy month for us as Christine and I prepare to go to Ilsan, South Korea. Ilsan is a satellite city of Seoul, the capital. From what we hear, it will take about 30 minutes by bus or 1 hour by subway to visit Seoul.

We start teaching on September 1, at L*Bridge. Originally, we were supposed to leave Indianapolis on August 23 to give us a few days to adjust to the time change, get settled into our apartment, and start planning for our year of teaching. After a minor setback in the visa process, we can't leave until August 30. We are set to arrive at Incheon International Airport at 8:55 PM local time on August 31. And yes, we are still starting on September 1.

About Me

We are both living in South Korea teaching English as a second language to elementary aged students. We arrived in September 2008 to work at L*Bridge for one year. It's like a reality TV show without the cameras and obscene backstabbing. See you in 2009!
