Being a new blog and all, I’ve been trying to flesh out the “Links” section of the site as it’s been looking a little sparse. Here’s a short run down of some of the recent websites I’ve post in my links.
My friend Paul at Dongguk Uni. has a pretty sweet photo blog called Adventure Dog Photography. He ‘s got mad talent and posts new photos pretty regularly, usually from around Gyeongju.
I’ve got a weird thing for ancient megalithic monuments, called dolmen, erected by prehistoric peoples and Korea’s got a lot of them. Here’s a funny little interactive website put up by Hwasun Dolmen Park in Jeollanam-do. There are apparently some dolmen around Gyeongju that I’d like to check out some time.
If you’re a English teacher here in Korea, Josette LeBlanc teaches at Keimyung Uni. in Daegu and has a pretty cool TEFL blog called Throwing Back Tokens. It’s especially well worth checking out if you’re serious about teaching and planning on making a career out of it.
The Marmot’s Hole has been around a while. Written by Robert J. Koehle, it’s a good mix of Korean current affairs, news commentary and general reflections of a westerner living in Korea.
The Gyeongju U-tourism organization (don’t ask me, ’cause I don’t know) has a new e-guide to Gyeongju that’s got a lot of useful info on tourist facilities and sights around town. Not too many people seem to know about it yet though.
If you’re curious about Buddhism or simply interested in having a unique cultural experience while in Korea, you should check out the Temple Stay program. Their English website’s very informative and looks pretty slick too. it’s improved a lot since the program started back in ’02.
That’s it for now. If you’ve got any tips for cool Korea-related websites or if have a blog of you own, I’d love to check ‘em out. Feel free to post them in the comments below.
