First day, and some photos

Had the first day of orientation in Seoul.  We submitted our flight receipts for reimbursement.   The actual training starts tomorrow.  Not sure how much they can teach us about teaching in a few days, but I’m thankful for all the help I can get.  We wandered around before lunch; here are a few pictures of Seoul near the university:

Edit:  I should probably add some details.  We flew into Incheon International Airport in Seoul.  I’m not sure how long the bus ride to the university was, but pretty long.  At least 1.5 hours.  We’re staying at Konkuk Univesity.  Accommodations are pretty nice for a dorm.  Everything seems brand-new.   As I mentioned in my last twitter update, my stomach is still adjusting to the food, but things are going well.

    Mike, I think Mom’s been slacking on family news now that I’m in KS, since I did not realize you and Erin were already in Korea! How exciting! :) I just came across your blog from facebook…I’ll have to keep checking for updates. Hope all is well! Take care!

    holy shit, it’s totally a different country and it LOOKS like it, too! Weird man, but way exciting. Once I’m not sleeping in so much, I’ll catch you on skype for sure.

    HEY! looks awesome! My roommate says that Konkuk U is right by his house. What a coincidence. Good luck out there.
