Derek's Journey Through Asia

As most people who know me are aware, on April 17th, 2003 I embarked upon a journey in Asia. While I've been gone, I've written some narratives, journal entry style, which describe parts of my trip. These are linked below. I have also taken quite a few photos while I've been here, and I've scanned a few of those and put them up here. The former probably will be of little interest to most people, but the latter may interest almost anyone, especially if you're interested in seeing what different parts of Asia look like. Finally, for scholarly types, I've been learning Korean. I've created some web pages to help me study, and those are linked below also.

As those same people are aware, I returned to Korea on the 3rd of September, 2003, in order to make my way teaching English to Korean children. I talk about many of the reasons in an article linked below. Basically, it's an interesting way to earn some money, and see (at least some of) Asia inexpensively. Having never lived outside the country, the trip will be full of first experiences for me.
