another look at my quirky city, Gwangju~~~~
Hmm how is it to live here…UHmm well it’s totally different! At first I kind of felt like a book character that got sucked into a new place~ Not that Korea is a magical land, but its a different world! Korea is small and efficient and its a place that thrives at night! I teach elementary/middle school at a private Academy in the afternoon and at night, so getting off at 9-10pm in the US, most things are closed, but in Korea street food is ready to serve and most places are open fairly late (pictured above is a night market that sets up as the evening becomes night)! The language barrier makes things a bit more challenging as I’m still getting the hang of Korean (I really really need to take lessons, but I’ve picked up a lot simply by being around Korean people 24/7). Once the culture shock dimmed down and my natural charm bloomed up again, I really fell in love with this place. Every day is pretty much an adventure for me, whether its shopping and cooking for myself or trying a new restaurant, wandering around my neighborhood or travelling somewhere totally new, meeting new people or reuniting with my friends. I think the process of being exposed to something so new and fresh has really invigorated me as a human and changed my views on myself, too. EVen though I’m learning culture and words every day, as corny as it sounds, I’m also learning a lot about myself. This has really been an amazing experience and I’m hoping I can stay here for many years to come ;)
Gwangju (it’s in the South Western corner of the country, the “city of lights” and the fifth biggest city in South Korea)~~ This is where I live and spend the most time, of course, and what a cute quirky city it is~
