Scenes from the hood

Since our job provides housing Kyle and I moved from the newest neighborhood in Andong, Ok-dong, to the oldest neighborhood in Andong, Yongsang-dong, before we started our new job.  I thought I would dislike the new neighborhood because it’s older, the grocery store here is not as good, and it is not close to the bars and restaurants. Luckily, I really like our new digs.  I like the apartment better even though it is older.  It is more homey with a separated kitchen, living room, and bedroom whereas our old place was a two bedroom and we didn’t fully utilize the second bedroom.  Also, our new place is a shorter walk to the river and is quieter.  Granted, there are very few good places to eat around us but some good food is only a short taxi ride away and with the oven and more regular hours Kyle and I have been cooking more.  I have been meaning to take some photos of our new neighborhood as it is filled with old style houses and interesting architecture – and I do have a few but they aren’t that great, my apologies!
