Going to Songpa, Making a List!

Today is my last day of work before I'm off to Korea. May 24th will be my first day teaching English to kindergartners in South Korea. The joint is called LCI (Language Club International) Academy.

I'll be in Seoul. Seoul is HUGE. Almost half of Korea's population is within Seoul's limits! It's so huge it's broken down into districts which can be identified by the 'gu' at the end of their names. I'll be in Songpa-gu. It has the only female mayor of the 25 districts. Fun fact... Tacoma's female mayor is HALF Korean!

Since these each of these districts is the size of a city, they are broken down into neighborhoods identifiable by the 'dong' at the end of their names. I'll be in Jamsil-dong.

Here is the exact location

This is the school

These are the areas I'm looking forward to:


And hopfully I don't get stuck living someplace like this:


Either way I'll be seeing/doing lots of this:











Wait... I think that last photo is from North Korea...

Now I need your help! I need to make a list of things to do and see while in Korea! If I put your suggestion on my list of things to do, I will take pictures of me doing it for everyone to see!
