Heading Out

Today we wrap up the EPIK orientation and head out to our province, Gangwon-do.  I’m glad to be done with training, but there was a lot of useful info presented.  Still a bit nervous about the placement.  Evidently the placements we were told on Monday are not set in stone.  The coordinator with whom we interviewed is not really the boss, and nothing is certain.  We were told that couples would “almost certainly” get placed where they were told, as there are not many couples placements in Gangwon-do.

I won’t breathe easy until Erin and I arrive at the same apartment, however.  Some couples (in other provinces) have been finding out that they are housed separately.  That one would be a deal-breaker for me.

Anyways, I won’t have internet atmy apartment until I can obtain my Alien Registration Card (ARC), which will take a week or two.  I’ll be checking in from school or internet cafes, but there may be fewer updates in the next couple weeks.

Wish us luck!

    Good luck! Sounds exciting, like what I’m doing except that everyone speaks a different language. Tomorrow I will go down to the ocean and yell HELLO really loud and you tell me if/when you can hear it. Good night (morning for you?) for now.

    I will keep my fingers crossed. I’m happy you are on your way…it’s time. Can’t wait to hear that you are both in the same apartment. Give Erin a hug.
