So far I have only been here for two weeks but I REALLY love it. I live in the Songchun-dong district of Daejeon and it reminds me a lot of Brooklyn in New York. TONS of restaurants (but that's everywhere here) and lots of activity. Everyone is very kind, even when I seem to be totally ignorant of their culture (which I am trying hard to get over!). Korean people are always very friendly when I ask them questions, and willing to help me even when we are speaking different languages!-November 2008
