I'll take this time to share a few things about Daegu
So, far all I can tell is that it closes pretty early. It's not nearly as alive as Seoul is, but I haven't found downtown yet. It reminds me a lot of the town in China I was in last year. I went exploring last night. I got off at a random subway stop and started walking. It was a dead part of town. I bought a pair of shoes in the biggest size they have and today they wore them to find they hurt my feet. I also needed to use the restroom so I asked a girl at this chicken place if I could use her restroom and she told me it was uncomfortable. I told her I didn't care so she took me to it. It was really ghetto. It was a squatty, but the ghetto part was walking to it, there wasn't a ceiling in some part of the hallway. I would prefer a squatty over a disgusting toilet though.
Today I went to the store and tried to buy regular pickles, but all they eat here are sweet pickles so I ended up with sweet pickles. I also tried to buy a pack of tuna cans and all I read was the tuna part. I somehow missed the "in hot pepper sauce." I did successfully find grapes that are seedless.
I should get to start teaching Friday or Saturday! Woot!
