A few days before we left for Korea, I (Simon) visited my old Korean boss to ask him about Bucheon. He told me, among other things, that Bucheon barely has any foreigners, as opposed to Seoul which is rife with ex-pats. For the first eight hours we were here in Bucheon, we thought he was right. Last night we changed our minds, though, as we saw maybe 10 or so foreigners walking around at night. I guess that makes sense, since we wouldnâ€™t see them walking around during the day – – they probably have jobs, and arenâ€™t freeloading like we are.
