As I’m succeeding in getting little else done today, I have decided to throw my two cents in on a topic that I imagine concerns the vast majority of women who make the move to Korea. Probably guys too, but screw it…they can find someone to write their own posts.
As most of you will know, Korea is a pretty much a homogeneous society. Obviously there are significant amount of foreigners here but Western teachers (like myself) number only 20,000 in a country of over 48,000,000 and as I’ve mentioned before, it isn’t unusual for me to go a good few days without seeing another Western face. Usually when I do it’s because I’ve made an effort to meet up with friends after worrying about my waning ability to speak my own language.
