Some very readable and worthwhile links that I want to share, but don't have time to write up at length:
Discussion of Expat misbehavior in Georgia. It touches on the way lack of accountability plays a role in people acting overseas in ways they wouldn't act in their home communities. Somebody sent me this link... I think of facebook... a long time ago.
Ants on the March - I really want to visit this neighbourhood. And ones like it. Any of my readers know more about "daldongnae"?
This article at the Diplomat, which I've added to my sidebar, suggests that while Western English teachers sure do raise a stink, the racism they face in Korea pales beside the treatment given to South Asians. I find myself agreeing. Matt from Popular Gusts discusses this article.
Matt also has a great write-up about more cartoon depictions of English teachers... plus other stuff. He's doing so much great work documenting the media campaign to scapegoat English teachers.
Nils Footman talks about one of the new web services that is part of bringing an end to Korea's internet monoculture.
