I moved to Incheon on Friday, August 26th. We met our coteachers and afterwards mine (Mr. Kim) took me to drop my stuff at my apartment. I had time to meet my landlord and discover that my apartment was brand new and then I was whisked off to a cold noodle lunch and then an all-teacher’s meeting where I introduced myself in Korean… then my officemates Youngeun and Sunhwa drove me to HomePlus (basically WalMart) to get stuff for the place. I had to buy a lot because it was a new place.
But now I am fairly settled in and ready to show some pictures! My building is also new, it is named Labendium and is located next to a big highway (but the highway is raised so you can’t hear it). From my house I turn right, walk past a church, and then I’m at school.
My door has no key. There is a keypad and it is a number code to get in. It feels really weird to leave my house without a key. That’s gotten better ever since I got spare keys to Jeff’s place. Jeff lives approximately 3 blocks away so it’s very convenient.
I don’t have an oven, just one electric burner in the counter top.
My bathroom is one room. You may notice the shower head. You just shut the door, roll the toilet paper behind its protective covering, turn a knob on the sink faucet, and take your shower. Needless to say the floor is often wet. I have a pair of flip-flops dedicated to using the bathroom when the floor is wet.
I have also created a short video tour of my apartment. I will post this when I’m able to.
