From Soul to Seoul: A Philadelphian in Korea

Some months ago, local quizzo fan and friend of this blog Garrett left here for there to teach ESL. He's been keeping a blog of his opinions and as a record/promo for the quizzes he's started in western round-eyed barbarian bars in Seoul, and I think it's well-written and well worth a gander. From Soul to Seoul

He recently shot me a hello note, and what better time to alert local readers to the blog? Of course this would be your first night activity should business or pleasure take you to South Korea.

If I had any sense when I was teaching ESL in Qatar, I would've done the same thing instead of speaking conversational English to other English speakers for free like a sucker. That's not what I was there for, no sir! Mercenary speech is the watchword of the ESL expat. There were plenty of Brits around who I'm sure would enjoy a good quiz.

Dude, thanks for the press and comment. I'm fortunate in the sense that there is a large English expat crowd for things like trivia and open mike.

Minor note: The most difficult thing about trivia here? Sports. It's a challenge to come up with fair non-American sports questions, and even harder to answer questions about cricket. Ugh.

Whenever I have a question about cricket, I just Googly it.
