So, I guess now that I've been here for a while, I should give you some idea of where the heck I'm living, and what a normal day looks like in South Korea. I live in Ocheon in Pohang City. Pohang (pronounced Po-"hung" not "hang" like I made the mistake of calling it at first) :) is a coastal city of around 500,000 people. It's location on the southeast coast of the peninsula has made it possible to become a major city of international trade in Korea. The largest company in the city is a powerful steel company called POSCO.
As far as tourism goes, Pohang also has a famous annual fireworks festival and a half-dozen beaches. Probably the most well-known tourist site, however, is a statue of an enormous stone hand rising out of the water at Homigot Tourist Park. The city is also a great place for delicious seafood.
I live in Ocheon, which is about 15 minutes away by taxi from downtown. I live on the same street as my school, in a somewhat rural area. Here's what my walk to school looks like...Enjoy!
And there you have it, a day in the life of an Expat teaching English! :)
