Anyways, the last time I posted it was from work. Today is our LAST day of work! It's the last day of the month so not much will be happening. Of course I'll be doing my job, but since it's summer vacation for my students, it might turn into a free for all. Yesterday I had pizza parties for all three of my classes (they deserved it after putting up with Gdog for 7 months!). In the past couple of days, we've closed our bank accounts, went to the pension office to setup our refund, and cancelled our cellphone (hand-pone). I'll make posts about these in the future.
Today, I'm going to rant and rave about the Best Western Niagara Hotel we were put up in last Wednesday and Thursday night. This hotel was located in Omokgyo and it sure was nice. We didn't expect anything fancy since work was paying for it. However, once we arrived we were definitely impressed!
Here is our boss helping us check into our hotel. She took us to the hotel after work on Friday night to make sure everything was right. She's been very helpful throughout our time here in Korea (she's gonna hate me for posting up her picture--SURPRISE!!):
We checked into the hotel without any problems and proceeded up to the tenth floor. Here is a picture our room. To our surprise, we were happy to see a king-sized bed, a clean washroom with a tub, and a nice LCD TV:
I thought the sink was pretty cool, especially coming from a Best Western!
Here's the TV with full cable...but of course, we only watched the Starcraft game channels--NOT!
Two robes were waiting for us in the closet...I don't remember the last time I wore a robe. Anyways, after taking a shower (which actually had water pressure) and jumping into one of these things I was a happy camper:
I thought this was a nice touch. Most of the hotels back home make you pay for bottled water (after strategically placing it on the table within your sight) but here, it was complimentary:
Here's the view from our window. You can see the Anyangcheon, which is part of the Han River:
So there you have it, our hotel for two nights. It was awesome staying in such a nice hotel, as we felt as if we were tourists. The next morning, we had the breakfast buffet which I'll post about later. Right now, it's 1:30pm on Tuesday and we're still rearranging our luggage. Since there are no scales at work, I'm going to roll my huge suitcases down to Hyundai Fitness Gym and use theirs for free! Our flight home leaves early tomorrow evening. My next post will be from my home back in Canada. Talk to you then!
