Emily and I have just finished all of our paperwork to get to Korea. Now, we wait for the consulate to send us our E2 visas and passports to we can actually move. The trip to Chicago was unneeded for the small interview we had. Everything we did could have been done over a short phone conversation and a postage stamp.
But we had fun...
We went with our friend Chase and had a fun night out on the town. One of the sad things is that we learned the school wants us to fly out to Gwangju this coming Friday. Don't get me wrong, we are both very excited to be going to work but we wish we could have just a little bit longer with our families. But the hard part is over for the preparation stage. Now we just have to figure out everything like how money works and where we live. It's going to be interesting to say the least.
Here is our itinerary:
Friday we drive to Nashville and fly out at 7:55 p.m. to Chicago. We then have a layover until 1:00 a.m. and then we fly strait from Chicago to Incheon National Airport. We should arrive there at about 6 a.m. From there we get a 4-hour bus ride to Gwangju and we will meet someone from the school. I really hope they let us rest a couple of days before making us go to the school, but we are both feeling that this may not be the case.
Friends and family: we are doing our best to hang out with you as much as we can before Friday!!!
These are a couple of my favorite pics from Chicago.
