Today was pretty much the same as yesterday except I stayed the whole day. Heather stayed after to talk to the headmaster and the headmaster told me to go home so I decided to walk home. It was a pretty nice day out. I had my winter coat on, but it was a really comfortable temperature. I’m sure I didn’t take a very direct route to get home and I got lost a little but things are starting to look familiar. Which is certainly a good thing since I can’t read any street signs and I don’t speak the language.
Bucheon at night. There are so many lights!!
Heather’s co-teacher, Bella, wanted to go out to dinner with her for one of her last night’s so Lauren, Ellen (my co-teacher), and I went out. Heather can’t really eat spicy food and she doesn’t like it so one of the girl’s suggested we go to Bennigan’s. Yup, a good ‘ol American meal. The company was certainly good and even though I think I’m still suffering from jet lag a little it was a really good time.
This is Bella and Heather
I certainly look exhausted, but this is with Ellen and Lauren.
Unfortunately for me I have to go for my health check tomorrow so I can get my ARC card, which is an alien resident card. It is an ID card that I need to get anything in my name, ie internet. I have to get blood taken so I am freaking out. Not only my worst nightmare, but in a country where I don’t know the language and the people at the hospital probably don’t speak mine. The school wrote me out a note of where I need to go and what needs to be said to the people doing the health check. It is written in Korean so I have to take their word for it. I’m just going to take a taxi there since they are pretty cheap here and the address was written out for the taxi driver in Korean so I will just show it to him. Ok, hopefully I live until my next post.
