Greetings from Cheonan!
It’s been an incredible week so far. Between work, spending time with coworkers/friends, and simply getting my bearings in this brand-new place, there’s little time left to write or even just breathe. But I wouldn’t have it any other way.
Now that the jet lag’s worn off, I’ve been getting up every morning before work to walk around outside, taking in everything I can.
I’m usually alone on these walks. I’ve learned that many businesses don’t open their doors until 10 a.m. (and I’m assuming that’s because potential customers are either 1) at work or 2) still asleep). Many Koreans work later into the evening and then still go out afterwards to eat/drink…usually into the wee hours of the next morning.
For example, I went out to eat with coworkers around 11 p.m. We were out and about until almost 4 a.m.
…What a wild ride.
Thanks for reading,
