During Chuseok break, I did more touring of Korea with Sydney’s parents.
These two weeks I start level 3 of my Korean class, have my last pronunciation lesson, and go to Lotte World.
I finish up level 2, go to Japan, go Geocaching, and see Banpo Bridge!
This will talk about how the classes are organized, what you learn in the second session, and what the midterm and final exams entail.
I eat at Chili’s, see Changdeokgung palace, and almost lose my ninja.
Okay, so you are required to get an Alien Registration Card (ARC) if you are staying in Korea over 90 days on any one visa. (So not required for a tourist visa; required for a student visa) Here’s how to do that.
So I’m behind on my blog by about 5 days. Sorry.
Okay, so the subway is a way of life here, and here’s how to use it.
Because I didn’t grow up in the city, this was the first time I’d ever ridden a bus other than a school bus. Because I know there are other people out there like me, here’s a guide to the Seoul bus system.
Okay! So when you land, you’ll need to withdraw money from ATMs, exchange money, get your SIM/wifi egg, and figure out transportation to your destination (express train, subway, limousine bus, late-night bus, or taxi).
