1st Day of Training + Medical Exam

This morning at 10:15 AM a call van came to pick us up from the hotel to take us to our first day of training. It was just a basic orientation, followed by four tests (which I passed! yay!) and then the van took us to the hospital for a medical exam. We were weighed and measured, then our eyes and ears were tested, next a chest x-ray, a blood test, and urine test, and we were done for the day.

The entire time we were at the training center and from now on whenever we're the training building, we have to wear these face masks so as not to infect the Koreans with our awful Western diseases. We aren't even allowed to mingle with the "domestic" trainees while we're there. The masks aren't too uncomfortable, but it's funny watching people with glasses wear them because it makes them all fogged up.

Starting tomorrow we'll have to find our own way back to the hotel from the training center via subway so I'm glad we got a head start on that.
