"R/L (rolled sound) ANA, LANA!" as I exit the school gates. I look back and three of my students are eagerly trying to get my attention despite my head phones being on. 

I say, "Hey girls! Hope you have a great evening!"

One girl responds, "I LOVE YOU!" with 100% sincerity. 

And I shout, "I LOVE YOU TOOOO!" 

"I'm glad!" as she smiles in the midst of her most perfectly awesome mushroom hair-cut. 

Little moments such as this are what get me through my home-sickness.

What does not help is making the post office lady upset for not knowing enough Korean, so I shall go be trendy and study Korean at the coffee shop (yes, it's a fad in Korea too).

They sell the shirt globally.

  1. Hi,

    I really like your blog!

    I wondered if you'd be interested in being featured on a Korean Travel Website? Here's the link to it:


    We started the site as a pilot, with just Gangwon-do, but it's been so successful that we're launching version two really soon with information on the whole of Korea.

    We don't have any information for Anyang yet and we'd love to feature some information from your blog if you have some you think would be suitable - we would link to you and hopefully increase traffic to your blog also... See http://www.thesouthkoreatravelguide.com/thesouthkoreatravelguide_contribute.html for details on what's in it for you :-)

    Hope you like the website! Look forward to hearing from you!

    Claire (site creator)
