Quarantine.

SK is now quarantining foreign English teachers coming into the country for a full week, before they're allowed out in public, thanks to the swine flu or whatever it's called now. Apparently, there have been a LOT of comments made to NETs all over the ROK who are already here, and have been here for some time. We should avoid hanging out with other foreigners, or going to neighborhoods like Itaewon and Hongdae, where foreigners hang out.

Lovely.

Now I understand why there were so many giggles in class last week when I taught the word "contagious".

Sigh. Another day in the life. Fighting!
