Me and my team in Korea

Wednesday, May 14, 2008

 

Flew into Seoul on Singapore Airlines (have to love this airline) and took the Korean Air Limobus into town.  Checked into the Ritz Carlton and they took my picture so the staff would know me the next time I arrived…guess I’ve been there often enough that they care?  Went to dinner at Hot Sun chicken restaurant…and the hot there is HOT!  Nothing else tonight…have to work in the morning.

Work.  Lunch in the office cafeteria.

View from the room of the office...this may all be built up soon...
  Work.  Dinner with the group at a pork BBQ.  This place was very popular, we had to wait over 30 minutes to sit down.  The meal was the usual setup…hot plate in the middle with the meat, kimchee, garlic, hot peppers, some hot sauce with lettuce leaves on the side for wrapping it all up, and a little salad.  Not like many other places, the meat and kimchee are long strips that we cut up ourselves with scissors, actually made it more fun!  Also a few bottles of an apple-flavored win.  It was all excellent!  Stopped in at Bar Andersen but it was pretty quiet tonight so called it an early night again.

Work again.  Lunch at a typical Korean restaurant near the office, one of those 30 side-dish affairs with courses that keep on coming, culminating in a bibimbap.  Yum!  Back to work to finish up and take some group photos then brought to dinner by the country manager to give the wrap-up and enjoy some beer.  Taxi back to Seoul around 10PM and flight is not until noon, so went in to Itaewon.  Three Alley Pub and Nashville Extension sports bar were a little quiet, and didn’t feel like heading to Helios.  Rocky Mountain Tavern was a little more busy so hung out there for a while.
