My New Apartment in Daegu

So I am back for my second year in Daegu, and I have a new apartment. I am in a different building this time and my apartment is much smaller.

Last year I had a big apartment with two big rooms in addition to an eating area, kitchen, and bathroom. This time it is much smaller, but I like it. It is called a villa here, but it is very similar to an efficiency apartment back home. There is one big living/sleeping area, a small kitchen, and a bathroom. It is quite cozy and I really enjoy it.

When I moved in I was the first person from my school to live here so I got a new refrigerator. Most refrigerators in Korea are quiet small, but I got a big one. One so big that it won’t fit in the kitchen. I only have 1 outlet in the kitchen and if I had the refrigerator in there it would block the light switch it is so tall. So it sits in my living/sleeping room.

Below are some pictures of my apartment. The first few are from when I first got here, and the last few I took today to show how my living/sleeping area is now.
