Exhausted in Seoul

Wednesday, June 22nd, 2005

It’s 8:15pm in Seoul right now; I’ve been awake for 26 hours straight now and I’m totally exhausted. My flight into Seoul arrived about 45 minutes late; to make matters worse, I spent nearly an hour in line for immigrations and custom, then another two hours caught in traffic trying to get into the city. This is by far the worst long-haul commute I’ve done. In 12 hours I need to be back down in the lobby to get a ride to the conference, and I’ll be one of the first speakers. I better get some rest. -andy

Seoul Layover

Saturday, May 8th, 2004

I just arrived in Seoul after a 14 hour flight from New York. We flew above the Arctic Circle, just north of Barrow, Alaska, then cut southwest across the Kamchatka Peninsula. I didn’t have a window seat so I didn’t get many peeks outside, but managed to catch a couple of glaciers over the northern Alaska coast.

Amazingly, Korean Air only played two movies the entire flight: Ben Affleck’s Paycheck and Disney’s Brother Bear, both dismal films, but for very different reasons that I’m too jetlagged to get into at the moment. (It’s 4am Boston time right now…)

Anyway, I’m enjoying the free broadband at Inchoen airport – my email is faster here than it is at home in Boston.

By the time I post my next blog, I’ll hopefully be in Hong Kong…. -Andy
