Where Am I?
So far I think Gwangju has been great. It's South Korea's sixth largest city with a population of 1.5 million. So it's not overwhelmingly huge and it's definitely not a small town. So there's plenty to do and it's easy to get around. My apartment is situated in what they call the "new downtown." I'm pretty much next door to the massive city hall and there's plenty of great restaurants and coffee shops in the surrounding area. On most days there's a guy right outside my door manning an American Style Hot Dog cart. I consider myself pretty lucky. The apartment is pretty nice. It's a little lacking in the furniture department but it came with a bed and heated floors that should be fun to use in the winter time.
Anyway, I want to try to post on here once a week. If nothing interesting happens for a while, then it might take a couple weeks. I'll share pictures and stories of my experiences for your viewing pleasure.
