myself as a young liberal

Would you hire this man?
It's two days until the airborn seeds are sown beneath my feet and i travel from Bridgetown to Perth to Hong Kong to Seoul to Busan, wherein i will take up the position of english language teacher at a Korean hagwon (private language school) amongst what Rob Whyte (part time author of lonely planet and poet-in-waiting) describes as the "gauche urban temperament" of the city's populace. He also likened the people to the food, calling them "salty, spicy and raw". Boy am I in for a treat. {photo by marty [sorry marty]}
