|Indian food--curry and naan!|
|Curry, naan, and rice!|
|Me, Adam, Danielle, Pam, Dolores, and Lily out for Pam's|
last night in Korea.
On Sunday, I finished unpacking and met up with Danielle and Lily later in the afternoon. They gave me a tour of Byeongjeom, my new neighborhood. They showed me where some good coffee shops, bus stops, grocery stores, and main streets are. We got some coffee and they also gave me a list of helpful words and phrases to use. After coffee, we met a few more people so we could go to Swoyambhu Restaurant in Suwon for Indian food. I've never really had Indian food, so I wasn't sure if I would like it. But it was delicious! It was Pam's going away dinner. Her contract ended, so she is going to travel in Thailand for some time before she moves to Okinawa to teach there. Hopefully, I'll get the chance to visit her!
|Korean money, the won. A dollar is about a thousand won.|
I think Korean money is very pretty!
Tuesday was quite uneventful, just teaching and starting to get into a groove at school. Wednesday was our snow day, which I just made a post about. I love unexpected free days! And today, Thursday, was quite swell. I'm feeling more comfortable at school, I'm remembering the names of students, and though the roads were icy, I didn't get lost on my way to work! George helped me to carry the bedding and catching supplies that work got to furnish my apartment home, and then I left to go in search of food. On the way, I ran into Adam, who lives in my building, and he decided to come to dinner with me. Lily and Jen joined us too, and we had some fantastic mondu and noodle soup dish. I'll definitely be going back there soon!
This upcoming weekend, I plan on going to the toilet museum (yes, you read that correctly!) on Saturday and journeying to Seoul on Sunday to visit a Van Gogh exhibit. At least that's the tentative plan, and it sounds like a it should be a fun weekend!
