Subject: Coming to Korea
Hello I received your e-mail address from ExpatJane, whose name and blog I found doing a random google search for Blacks in Korea. My name is Nicole and I have signed a two year contract to teach pre-k at an international school in Bundang. I'd be interested in receiving information from you regarding the times that your ex-pat group convenes. I'll be arriving on the 21st of this month. Also, I was wondering could you suggest the name of reputable shipping company. Thanks a lot.Best Regards,Nicole
Hello hi nicole :)
i'd be interested in receiving information from you regarding the times that your ex-pat group convenes. we're not official, we're just a bunch of black folks who know each other and randomly hang out, so... no set meeting time i can give you :)
I'll be arriving on the 21st of this month. coo, call when you get here, maybe we can make it a dinner or something. but bundang is a bit far, i think... maybe we can arrange a dinner or something during your trip to seoul, maybe you'll come up on weekend?
Also, I was wondering could you suggest the name of reputable shipping company. to ship your things from home to korea? big boxes? hmm... i dont have specific suggestions; sometimes my parents send me things, they just use the post office. i believe DHL ships here as well, ups... im not sure how different they all are.
if you have facebook or myspace, i suggest browseing the blkkorea groups, maybe find people who live in bundang, they can tell you a bit of what it's like? and be free to email me with questions at any time :)
