Welcome to Korea: the place where we have no needs

All in all a typical day of work. Arrive at 8:00. Wait for Michelle to come in at 9:05. Start class at 9:10. The kids are thirsty but there is only one water fountain in the building that has not been disconnected yet. The floor is dirty but there is only one mop in sight and it is held together only by divine intervention. No supplies for the filthy foreigner. Michelle has a big-screen television, a tape player and a laptop connected to the TV so that she can show movies downloaded from the internet. Asiatown has a whiteboard and three markers. But no eraser.

Lunchtime. I'm a bit leery since the food poisoning incident, but free grub is free grub. Today's special: Bibimbap: Eggs with rice, carrots, "hot jam" and some long brown thingies that possibly resemble worm turds but are supposed to be superhealthy veggies. I don't know, because I'll never eat them. And the best part? Desert:

They washed out the rice cooker with warm tap water and poured said water into plastic cups. L'chaim!
