It’s quite an odd notion to have found a job in a place I’d never heard of before, in a country I’ve never been to, but I guess a lot is possible with a little help from the internet!
The internet is also very helpful when trying to get an idea of the place where I will end up. I saw on Google Maps that Yantai is a coastal city, and that there are a lot of Korean restaurants, a shopping mall and a KFC in the area where the school is located. Wikipedia has been able to tell me a bit about the city and its history. The city has its own website as well, even with some English content. And, there even is a website geared towards expats living in Yantai! At least I’m getting some idea of what it’s like to live in Yantai and it’s no longer a complete black hole. :D
