Day 45

Day 45: Administrative day I will be studying abroad this coming year at Sciences Po in Paris, so I had to register for my fall courses this morning at 10am. Unfortunately, it conflicted with my photography class this morning (10am-12pm), so I figured I would at least show up late to class. However, my housemate … Continue reading

Day 35 pt. 3

Day 35 pt. 3 After the dentist/hair stylist’s, we went to a Korean restaurant– not to eat, of course (since we were really full from the kimbap and bu-chin-gae), but to go meet some acquaintances and to take pictures. There was no sign again in front of the restaurant except for a lamp above the … Continue reading

Day 34

Day 34: catching up on photos After photography class, I went to the buddhist temple to see if the sunim wanted to go eat at the 둘리 분식점 (dool-lee bunshik-jum) (so that I could take photos of the place). I brought my larger camera to take photos of the interior. It’s located on the corner … Continue reading

Day 31

Day 31: went to my photography class today. Today was photoshop day; I’m learning a lot! : ) But I realized that I’m not really getting my money’s worth because the class always starts at least 10 minutes late and there are a lot of holidays in the month of July; so I will be … Continue reading

Day 20

So this year it was moved to June 21st to fall on a Monday. This meant no photography class. I followed the … Continue reading

Day 9

Day 9: A trip to Avenida Avellaneda I figured I would just show up again to the Buddhist temple because I didn’t really know who else to go to. The priest didn’t seem to mind that I came so often, so I figured why not. She asked me what I had in mind for the … Continue reading

Day 6

Today, I went to the Korean Embassy in Buenos Aires to see if I could find out more information about Korean immigrants in Argentina. Unfortunately, their resource library was closed, so they referred me to another library containing information at the Centro de Estudios Corea-Argentina, which is a part of the Universidad de BsAs (la … Continue reading

Day 5

Today, I went to one of the largest Korean churches in BsAs, Chungang Church, which apparently has over 1,000 members (but can’t say for sure). It has two services: the first at 10am and the second at 12pm. Then there is the young adult bible study at 4:30pm and the young adult service at 6pm. … Continue reading

Day 3

Original plan: -visit La Associación Coreana en la Argentina for information, advice and contacts. -visit Koreatown in Bajo Flores, then maybe Avellaneda and Once. As I started researching how to get to Koreatown in Bajo Flores, however, I noticed that there were a lot of warnings about how dangerous the area had become. So I … Continue reading
