Daegu Stadium

Today we had a field trip to the Daegu Stadium (previously called World Cup stadium). The World Cup was held here in 2002, and the 2011 world championships for track & field were also held here.

I’m here/First few days of teaching

This is long overdue, but I got my visa and am finally in Korea! You probably already knew that. I arrived in Seoul on Saturday at 5 pm local time. Then a recruiter met me and helped me get to the bus to Daegu, which was a 4 hour ride. I happened to meet another […]
