I'm just back from dinner with all of my co-workers. It was mentioned last week but until today nobody knew where we were headed or indeed what the occasion was. We all ate and had a decent time but as we (the foreigners) were going I found out it was a leaving party for one of the Koreans. That's how things are at my place. The is a definite divide. I found tonight symptomatic of the way it works at my academy, again, disappointing that we are left out of the loop. In the grand scheme of things it doesn't matter at all but we are always the last ones to know. It does remind you that you're a guest here and not a regular member of society.
