Unless you teach at one of the S. Korean schools that is mandating quarantine for everyone who leaves the country, you probably thought you were done hearing about “the Quarantine.”

Sage Tyrtle from the Canadian podcast Quirky Nomads contacted me about doing an interview and I had a great time talking with her about our time in the swine flu madness lockdown.  As much as it was up and down while in it, everyone was right, it does make an interesting story to tell.

I think her hook-line for the story is fantastic: “When Shanna Underwood of Ruby Ramblings and her friend Jim were laid off at the same time, they decided to go to Korea and work as English teachers for a year. A week after arriving, Shanna was woken up at four in the morning by a knock at her hotel room door.”

Quirky Nomads has a lending group on Kiva if anyone is interested.

Oh it was so great to hear your voice again! So great that somewhere in the middle of the interview when girl who interviewed you started to laugh really hard I realized that I’m focused on your voice imagining you as you’re speaking and completely missing what exactly are you talking about LOL!
Of course I had to re-listen it and indeed it is fantastic story.

“We need you but we don’t really like you” WOW!
