...and other madness.
-by Cheris Barker and Rob Lifford-

We taught English in Taejon, South Korea from October 1998 to December 1999. The pages archived here contain hundreds of photos, stories, and other stuff that we put online during our first 14 months in Korea.

After a brief vacation in the USA, we returned to Korea in late February 2000, teaching in the southern city of Kwangju from March of that year to August 2001. Those adventures can be followed via our second-generation Korea site, the Kwangju Chronicles.
