Palyongdong, Changwon, South Korea - Our New Home

So i've started a blog which means that the all too infrequent emails will probably disappear altogether now - sorry in advance! As you may or may not know i've been here over a month now and so much has already happened. I will hopefully write about it at some point but not now because Saturday night is fast approaching and there is cheap and plentiful alcohol to be enjoyed. It is indeed a nation of drinkers; there are two main local drinks, one of which is drunk from shot glasses, the other from bowls; both are lethal. Tonight we're going out with a couple we met in the Supermarket. Only in a place such as Palyongdong where westerners are rarely sight (we've seen four in over a month) could it be perfectly acceptable to meet a couple in a supermarket and after a 2 minute chat arrange a night of drinking. So for now some photos of our new home.......

Memories
Thanks Catherine for the photos which triggered some good memories. I used to live in Changwon from 1997-2002 and enjoyed looking at pics of the city again. I think the itinerant teacher in Korea has a good idea regarding your lifestyle, living quarters, and neighborhoods...and yeah, the idea of drinking with someone you met and feeling perfectly fine about it, is common to us expats. The city has grown a little since I've been there...my wife and I went last year--there is now a Starbucks...a few more shopping malls...a TGIF's (I think) and more...the downtown scene is fun as is the Yong Ji Mote area....going to Masan or Busan on a weekend is well worth doing. The IP or O'Briens can be fun too^^. Have a great Korean stay and soak up the experience.
