Little did I realize, however, just how close my apartment and job would be to one of those Theme Parks. E-world is a Theme Park in Daegu, Korea's third largest city. It is open all year round and depending on seasons it is half water park, ski park and theme park.

How to Make Friends with Locals While Teaching in Korea

Posted on Tue, Mar 06, 2012 @ 10:01 AM

We all need friends, especially when you live in a different country. While teaching in Korea my co-workers have become some of the closest people in my life, not only because we work together but also because I spend a large part of my time with them.
