MIMers are still on the go in Asia. Had a whirlwind stay in Seoul, S. Korea. Loved the Hyundai plant tour – the automation in their factory is absolutely amazing. Korean food is so tasty, the people so gracious, shopping is excellent and loved the sights. We must come back and explore more of South Korea some time!
Make sure to keep tabs on the MIM 2011 Asia trip on Facebook and Twitter. Photos take forever to upload to the blog from the hotel in Beijing. It’s easier to post quick updates on Facebook and tweet!
