I am all moved in at the dorms at Chung-Ang!
The taxi drive went smooth. For about a 20 minute ride, the cost was only around $11.50.
After a bit of confusion upon arriving at the dorms, one of the Korean “Welcome Ambassadors” showed me to my room. Sadly, the whole residence building is undergoing major plumbing renos and we’re actually not allowed to use the washroom facilities (tap water, toilet, shower, etc) until sometime tomorrow… Yes, no showers, brushing teeth, etc until tomorrow afternoon (at least that’s what I understood from my guide!!). Yuck.
Anyways, I moved in okay.
Oh, and about the “typhoon” yesterday, I was totally fine. Apparently it took a turn and actually didn’t hit South Korea too bad (I heard the North wasn’t so lucky) but I stayed at Bong House all day anyways. The “typhoon” was more like some strong winds and rain. Oh well.
Now I’m off to go see some other exchange students and buy my bedding, towels, etc.
Here are some photos of my dorm:
