I'm moving to Korea for a year. Here's hoping WWIII holds off that long.

I'd like to say I've got your back, but it's another 3 years 'til I'm in the fleet.

Why? My year in Dongducheon or Tongduchon was enough for me. Was at Hovey, and the highlight of our weekend was the air mattress and e-tool races down **** Creek. Or going downtown and to the lowest VD rated Club of the night.

Look high rise brick barracks, we lived in Korean War era quonset Huts and had a central oil stove for heat, and a communal shower we had to 'run' to in winter at -40. Things have changed but no thanks...BTDT didn't like it.

I'll be teaching at an English language immersion school in Incheon for a year. Apparently there's a Dunkin's down the street from the apartment building they're packing the native English-speaking teachers into, and an Irish bar. Both of those things are very important to my survival in a foreign land.

Koreans love to drink.  It wont be hard to find a bar.

They have a store called Home Plus which is pretty much their Walmart.  You will find everything you ever need here.  They had one in the basement of the hotel we were staying at during our time there and you could walk down and buy one of these guys for a few dollars.  They were already cold.



The flash got in the way...but that's 1 liter.

I also miss Soju.

If you are out drinking, Lotteria (Basically their Mcdonalds) has some fantastic mozzarella cheese sticks.  We always seemed to end up there when out at the bars.

Currently the part of this trip I'm most concerned about is the layover in Detroit, which is 12hrs longer than I thought it would be (goddammit why can't everybody just use 24hr time? I did what you do when you assume) . Packing was cake, except for the thing I will remember at 30k'

I have a home plus(u) directly across the street from the apartment, and a 24hr convenience store on the ground floor. So far it seems like the culture differences boil down to manners, so basically anything that would make my grandmother, or a DI, mad (gum-chewing, hats indoors hands in pockets etc.) are things to avoid, and I basically get a pass for being so obviously foreign. Oh, and I had been thinking that it wouldn't be too cold since it seems the weather in Incheon is about like home, you need a coat every time you are not in a room, hallways are not heated or terribly insulated. Suburbs are about non-existent. It goes from highrises to hillbilly farms in <1/4mile.
