I am very blessed to have a two-bedroom apartment. Very blessed and very grateful. I'm the only EPIK teacher in Daejeon that has one...at least that I know of. However, everyone else has an air conditioner which I don't. I'm learning to live with it. The 2 fans Rachel left me, and the 2 heavy-duty fans that I bought really do make a big difference. I'm trying my best not to have to buy one. Ask me again next summer...
Here is a video I just took today of my apartment! What do you think of my little home away from home? I have done my best to make it homey and comfortable...a place where I can relax at the end of a long day...a place where friends feel comfortable hanging out and welcome anytime.
Also, I found out some tips on sending packages to Korea from a new friend of mine who has lived here for a year. She and her mom have learned this through trial and error.
- Use the regular postal service. It will take about 2 weeks to get here.
- Never go above 4 pounds. Even if you have to send more than one package, never let the package be more than 4 pounds. They will weigh it there and take out things if you need to.
- On the customs form, put the value at no more than $50.
- You can use a box or the bubble wrap envelope. Just be sure you pack it well.
I just wanted to let you know just in case you send me a package. Thanks!
