Busan Bound....

Posted by Ava Larkin on Monday, October 22, 2012, In : Travels in South Korea 


This school week wrapped up with a bit of friction between a female administrator and myself.  Sadly, the English department (IE my koteacher and myself) is the last to know anything about what goes on in the school, so we were under the impression that we had no classes Friday, since the school had organized a field trip to the amusement park in Daegu.  This also meant that I believed Ssam (short for teacher) Heo to be in Daegu.  Friday morning I texted my koteacher (Jeniffer) to let her k...

Chuseok... Korean Thanksgiving

Posted by Ava Larkin on Wednesday, October 10, 2012, In : Travels in South Korea 



Chuseok is the Korean Thanksgiving, where the Fall harvest is celebrated by women cooking for days on end and the men (and in many cases) sons and daughters get to sit back and relax and chat it up with their schoolmates who are in town from Seoul.  Obviously, I have a beef with this... only because I was raised to help my parents (notice I said PARENTS not mom), not just during the holidays, but whenever there's a need.  So, kids who don't lift a finger during the holidays kind of upst the A...
