Teaching English in Daegu, South Korea!

NOA: Daegu?

Teehee, so all this time I have been telling people that I am headed to Busan. Busan bound. Beautiful beach town & teaching. Yesterday I figured out that I am not going to Busan but going to Daegu in stead! The news of this switch however came as a big surprise when Jeff got his contract 3.5 hours before me. His stated that he was assigned to Daegu- all I could think was, where the hell am I? So I missed the DHL guy first time around and called him immediately. He told me that he could “probably swing by at 2:30.”

I waited around….

I waited around… unable to concentrate on anything else for more than 10 minutes because I would be looking out the window!!!

Finally, he showed up with a big smile and handed me the envelope. Inside was

1. NOA

2. 2 contracts

3. EPIK packet

4. Visa E-2 form

The beloved DHL package!

NOA: Daegu!

The contract. Half in Korean, half in English.

EPIK information. 5 page packet with lists and websites about getting ready.

So the waiting game is over for receiving real documents from EPIK! Yay! I am just so anxious to see how this all pans out. There was some confusion with my contract and the salary- but that will be cleared up at orientation. Thanks to Joyce for all of her efforts! Hooray! Up next…filling out the Visa E-2 application. This is confusing.

Now that we found out we are going to Daegu, I have been doing a lot of research on the area. It seems really vibrant and beautiful!

I found a cute video, it just strolls through Daegu- a quick snap shot!
