The English Teachers under Swine Flu Quarantine= my new fave blog
Wow. I've been reading this blog for the last couple of days and I'm just obsessed with it. It is well written and I just can't believe that it is happening right now, right here. I mean the other night I was about 10 minutes from where they are being held. Is it prejudice? Is it racism? Or is it simply precaution. I'm just as scared about the swine flu as everyone else, but since I look Korean, people aren't concerned. For example, I've had a cough for a couple of days and I went to see a doctor for a check up and she didn't really do any tests at all. She gave some medicine and sent me on my way. Now I think the situation would have been different if I was white or "foreign" looking. I could be in the quarantine with these people right now.
I should eat some kimchi. It is the cure all for everything.
