One of the best ways to explore a new place is on a bicycle. I took the Bianchi out yesterday to discover what Hoseo University, Asan and Cheonan had to offer. As you can see in the photos the campus is clean and modern. I am definitely excited about starting work there as an English professor.
I went into town and found two things I was looking for, a self-carwash and a bike shop. The Bianchi was in dire need of a tune up and me being new to roadbikes I wanted an expert to look at it first. I explained to him as best as I could in my broken Korean that the gears need to be adjusted. He put it up on his stand and spent 10 minutes with it. It came back with perfect gears. He didn’t want to charge me anything for the labor, so I bought a bottle of Wet Ride lubricant and was on my way.
Today, I’m going to take the bike out again in an attempt to find a swimming pool and some alternate roads for getting into the countryside.
Tomorrow is a big meeting for all of the English professors. It will be nice to meet everyone and see what my class schedule will be!
