Mind, Body, and Seoul

I'm wrapping up 2 weeks of business in Korea and flying back home tomorrow. I had many meetings during KGDC and had a few hours to tour G*STAR (the korean equivalent to E3). Last time I had a free day and went visiting the DMZ; this time around I barely had the time to walk around the block. As usual, I indulge myself in the local traditional food early in the trip to slowly migrate back to NA food later on. Enough with BBQ pork, kimchi, ttok, chop-chop and green tea already. Tonight I want a burger, fries and a Coke. Yeah!!

G*STAR was held at Kintex rather than at the COEX this year. The Kintex is a new convention center, somewhat larger than COEX. But Kintex is waaaaaay outside Seoul, in the middle of farming nowhereland and dangerously close to the northern border. And with the APEC summit this week, traffic was at its peak. The trip from the olympic stadium to our hotel located near Gimpo airport took 5 hours... It would probably be faster to drive south to Busan and take a plane back to Gimpo. Having a PSP or gaming phone handy (with an extra battery pack, mind you) during those cabby rides is worth its weight in gold...
