I am now an alien

Well, that is my alien registration done. I think! It was all very confused, Katrine, Gregor and myself were picked up by a minibus (Richard was already on it) and taken to the Ulsan Immigration Centre. There were about 20 people already there, guys Richard works with and their families and 1 representative from Hyundai to sort all the forms out. We all just milled around and then randomly called to the counter, finger printed and then told we could all leave. Apparently that is it, Richard will get our alien registration numbers tomorrow and once he has them he can sort out the shipments arriving and our proper card thingys will turn up in a week or so. Very glad Hyundai sent someone to sort it out as it would have been chaos otherwise.

The rest of the day was pretty quiet, I still haven’t figured out anything to do with the kids and it is too hot and muggy to be outside long. We did make it to McDonald’s for lunch and we got what we ordered. We met another family arrived from Singapore, so will try and arrange a few plays and get to know some more people quickly.

I also did another trip to Emart, our nearest supermarket, to start getting the kitchen set up. I am going to try and concentrate on what I did manage to find rather than the things I didn’t. So yeah for official blue bin bags (these were tricky to get) and chocolate digestive biscuits.
