Friday after school, we suddenly felt très lonely. We had been here for a little over a month and we still hadn't met any friends. So we turned to the our friendly neighborhood World Wide Web for some answers. Being more geographically knowledgeable of where we were, we started looking for groups in our area. Jen stumbled upon the Bundang Social Club (BSC) Facebook page. Bundang is where she actually teaches. It takes her 30 minutes door-to-door (15 min on the bus) to get there so it's reasonably close. As we were reading the threads, we discovered that there was an Expat Festival slated for tomorrow (Saturday) at World Cup Stadium. It was too bad we already had plans... Korvia was throwing its welcoming party for all of its teachers and we were really looking forward to it... But wait, the party didn't actually start until 6:30pm... and the Expat festival began at 2:00pm... Who said we couldn't do both? Did we absolutely have to be there for 6:30? A fashionably late/grand entrance would be much more dramatic!! So it was agreed... we would do both.

On Sunday, I woke up with a hangover... cooked bacon (the thickest bacon I have ever seen), cleaned the apartment and did some laundry... OK, Jen may have done most of the cleaning... lol.. Overall, we were happy about our weekend and we were already looking forward to Everland next weekend!!! But for now, it was back to teaching for another week!!
