Last August when I arrived in Korea, 1 million Korean won transfered as about 1150 US dollars.
As of today, September 2nd, 2008. 1 million Korean won is 881 USD.
So, I'm working harder for LESS damn money.
I can't believe how POORLY the US dollar is doing.
So. I have no choice but to send money home monthly. This month I will close probably close to 200 dollars in my transfer.
That really just sucks.
Maybe you don't understand since you don't live abroad. But think about it. If you had to just toss 200 bucks of your pay check away in the trash can.
