One of the greatest years of my life was spent in Seoul, South Korea. At the time, it was great exposure to a new culture, Korean students and language, and spending high times with other teachers from all over the Western world. The Korean people treated me very well, too, and I sample dishes that at that time were not available in Richmond, VA. I was so happy living half way around the world and out of Richmond, which paled by comparison. There was no "hardest part of the job"; I loved every minute of it. The most enjoyable part was the children, and watching grow in English fluency. Teaching was almost laughably easy; the kids were like sponges.
The people, the beauty of the women, and the exotic food
