At the end of last week, my girlfriend and I moved to Seoul. I’m going to be working as a elementary level English teacher. I’m very excited about this and start my lessons this afternoon.

This city is amazing. Having lived in the countryside for the last few months, it’s great to be back in a city. I’ve always found the countryside solipsistically lonely and dull. Here, nobody stops. Ever. Not even at 5 am (I’m still on English time, what’s their secret?).
