Hi! I have a website (www.thesouthkoreatravelguide.com) and we are just about to put up a HEAP of information about Daegu on there. Your pictures and blog are really awesome, and I just wondered whether you would be interested in becoming a site contributor? We are particularly looking for more pictures of Daegu itself and some of it's top tourist spots, bars, etc (the ones above are great!!), as well as a little more info on a couple of places, and.... bus schedules!!!! If you'd be interested in helping out, please get in touch with us at contactus@thesouthkoreatravelguide.com I hope you like the site! Claire

Yep, we freaked out too
Great post on the Dr. Fish. My girlfriend and I went there recently, too, and we giggled like, well, Korean school girls. But it is ridiculously cheap considering how much people charge in the US (at least in the states where it's still legal). Anywho, you can check out our video of the experience here: http://alexpickett.com/2010/11/07/welcome-to-korea-another-sunday-another-tub-of-fish-eating-your-foots-dead-skin/

Julie drinking tea

Drinking Tea
Nice picture! Drinking four or more cups of tea every day could be more beneficial than drinking water. They say that tea not only rehydrates you as well as water does, but it can also offer protection against heart disease and cancer. It is commonly thought that drinking tea leads to loss of fluid and may lead to dehydration. But according to researchers, the water in the tea can actually help replenish fluids in the body. Some of the best teas can be found at trentonteas.com. Cheers!

My son just arrived on Thursday
My son, Jared, just arrived on Thursday to begin teaching English in Daegu for this next year. I saw your blog and thought it would be great if you and some of your friends met and could help him find his way around. I know I'm being a mother and I am sure he is doing just fine, but it would be better to meet some people. Are you staying for another year?

I'm glad to see Puddinghead is still making the rounds. Hopefully he'll come to Japan soon! Return to his homeland for a bit! :)

It's a great shot! :) Ziggy's going to a really enthusiastic family in the first week of July (~the 5th). :) He's such a sweetie. All he wants to do is play. Play with me, play with strangers on the street, play with our neighbor dog ("his girlfriend"). I can't believe I only have 4 weeks left with him!

I think it's just the LOST fever that has been happening here in the US of A, but that hand picture reminds me of a crazy desert island.

KAPS requires only that the family pay the normal adoption fee (100,000W which covers the surgery to neuter), which, considering most of these animals are purebred, is actually relatively inexpensive. The cost to fly the dog home, on the other hand, will be covered through fund-raising. In this situation, it will be, anyway. I can't say the same for other adoptees. Additionally, Koreans are really big on little dogs. Herding dogs, like this little Corgi, and the bigger dogs at the shelter are much less likely to be adopted by Koreans, especially since they are out of their puppy phases. So KAPS ships to Canada and the US to let supply meet demand. Recently, an Afghan hound was flown over to California to the Afghan Rescue of Southern California, where he will be taken care of and permanently rehomed in the United States.

I want a puppy! I wish my room were bigger than a Harry Potter-sized closet because I would totally foster a puppy, especially one that sounds like he was named by Chase Fetters! :)

I knew you were affiliated, but wasn't aware of how closely! I sincerely hope this entry helps clarify things for prospective teachers, as well as shed some light on how things work. :) I'm glad you enjoyed reading, Rebecca, and thanks for the comment. I think it'll answer even more reader questions!

Applying Directly with CDL (ChungDahm)
Hi Katie! This is great info. I love reading your blog. Just an FYI that Aclipse is actually owned by ChungDahm Learning. I get the impression you're not aware of this. So for all your readers, if you apply to the CDL website, www.teachinkorea.com, unless for example, you already live in Korea, your resume should still come to us--the Aclipse team, thus, the recruitment process is the same. Just so people know there's not any difference. If you're already in Korea, you interview directly with CDL. We have a very close relationship with them since we're all part of the same company; I think this also makes us a little different than most agencies b.c. we're not a third party. We do take third party contracts with other schools from time to time and in that circumstance act in a way similar to other agencies. Hope this clarifies the relationship for your readers who may be thinking about applying with us. Thanks for the honest, wit, and humor in your blog!! I enjoy reading it!!

Working with Chungdam
I have an interview next week with Chungdahm next week and I am trying to get information about the company. I hear horror stories about how companies are run or how people are paid on time. I was wondering what you could tell me about your experience. Thanks.
