    1. I decided to stay here in Suwon for the year. I love the people, the atmosphere, the ease of getting around (the subway system rocks!). Teaching the little ones is really an enjoyable experience. My friend who opened up the hagwon where I'm teaching, is grateful and is dedicated to putting together a hagwon that is enjoyable for the kids, the teachers, and the parents. Apparently, that is a rare feat here in K-land. But if anyone can do it, my friend can.

    2. I recently asked by one of the parents (who speaks good English) about the common racial slur used by Westerners to denote Asians and the origin of the term. I didn't have the heart to tell him. But I did let him know that I'm sure an Internet search would probably answer any question he had about it. It turns out I was right.

    3. I left the states only a few weeks after the Inauguration. From the news I am able to read, it looks like the Obama era is going very well. And it looks like there are signs that the U.S. economy is beginning to recover. Good for Him, good for America, and hopefully good for you.

    4. Speaking of Obama, it turns out that he is really popular here in the ROK. I wish I could speak more than a few phrases of Korean. I would make these Kimchiheads come over to the PZ to see some real Obama-haters in action.

    Anyway, all is well in K-land. I hope everyone is enjoying this fine spring weather. Peace -VCD

    Enjoy your time there and don't worry about the comments here. It's interesting to see the perspective another country has on the U.S..

    You mean to say the Korean peninsula is fond of demagogic leaders who inspire legions of cultish, braindead followers? Who knew?!

    Whatever you do, don't come back.

    I appreciate the kind words. It really is a 'trip' being here, but I am so glad I did it. It has brought a new perspective on so many things.

    I'm not worried about the hecklers. They are on their way to being banned because they don't get the fact that their behavior is not acceptable. Nothing I can do about it.

    Peace.

    I might start one, if I can find the time. I'm pretty busy right now. But I do have quite a few photos to share.

    I'm sure the South Koreans are probably already sick of you and your left wing views and would like to send you north. Are you sure you are in Korea and not Viet Nam? Seems like Nam would suit you better. I'm sure Jane Fonda is a hero of yours.

    Well folks, it doesn't get anymore dittohead than that. But to give credit here (as it takes an element of bravado to act in a way that will eventually get one's self banned), Ninja, I just want to congratulate you on your brave behavior and your willingness to risk paying the ultimate price.

    Maybe hes not trying to prove anything. Just posting for the sake of posting.

    Granted, his post is better served in OT.

    Thanks for the kind thoughts. I haven't heard any opinions about the rocket launch. One of the first things I learned about the ROK is that they generally are not phased by any international news concerning North Korea. I've been told more than once that North Korea is always "crying wolf", so to speak.

    ROK people seem to be so much more self-absorbed with their working lives and families to be overly concerned with politics. At least that's what I am able to gather. They typically work 55-60 hours a week.
