Well, I guess it would be more accurate to say I’m a mill-won-aire. Payday is the 25th of every month and I got my first check on March 25th. My salary is 2,000,000 won, which is roughly $1,800. That might not seem like much, but every month I am able to send half of that home.
My friends and I wanted to do something nice to celebrate making it one month through our contracts so we decided to go to a nice dinner. The place we went to specializes in vegetable dishes and was 25,000 won per person (about $23). You can check out the pictures below. I am a little disappointed that I failed to take a picture of the eel. I did try it and it wasn’t bad… I was proud of myself!
