How to Get a Response (from Seoul, Korea)

This Korean Team is ‘On The Case’ (study) I led two classes this week in Seoul – “Working Globally”, and “7-Step Problem Solving”. We had some particularly animated discussions during the BKM’s class, as we discussed how to work more successfully between Korea and the US. During the discussion, I

Hanging Out in Seoul

Here I am, in Seoul, with some new friends.We’re at a traditional festival at Namsan Park. I think they’re supposed to be old-time policeman, which means I’m under arrest.Fortunately, it’s bad publicity to beat a white man with those little clubs, so I got away with just a warning! I

Iris, Iris, Iris (from Seoul, Korea)

Another image from the Dano Folk Festival in Seoul. This one shows a girl wearing a Hanbok – the traditional Korean dress – and washing her hair in iris water. Apparently, this used to be a big deal. My iris, looking through the camera iris, was more than happy to

Swinging in Seoul – Seoul, Korea

We arrived in Seoul on Friday night.The taxi ride in was a bitch… 2 hours in bumper to bumper traffic. We’re staying at the Shilla Hotel, which is very nice, but English-challenged to say the least (at least, compared to the Westin Chosun, where we used to stay). Saturday was

Learning Through Music: Deli Spice (from South Korea)

Since I’m heading to Korea in the morning, I thought I’d give you a taste of my favorite Korean rock band. The name of the band is Deli Spice.I’ve been listening to them since about 2002, when they caught my attention with a weirdly captivating cover of “Bette Davis Eyes”.

Bali Dreaming

We head to Korea (and then Israel) tomorrow, but tonight my thoughts are of Bali. I’ve been going through a bunch of my slides and moving them to my photo website – hues. Tonight, I added some more shots of Japan and Thailand.I also created new galleries for Vietnam and

Five Books to Enhance Your Presentation Skills

I watch a lot of presentations…. and most of them stink. For example, today a group of us watched a 30 minute presentation that felt like 4 hours.Don’t get me wrong; the speaker had a lot of positive attributes.He moved well. He engaged audience members. He had good stories. He

Monkeys and Typewriters, Airplanes and Seatmates

You’ve probably heard the saying – put enough monkeys in a room with typewriters, and one day you’ll come out with a novel. I feel the same way about airplane travel – throw me in enough economy seats, and eventually I’ll be lucky enough to meet someone interesting. That’s not

Five Reasons I Love Travel (from Hsinchu, Taiwan)

My high school English teacher, Mrs. Remington, always said, “It’s a sad day, when you don’t learn something new.” I have my own spin on that, which is, “It’s a sad day when I don’t see something new.” As Martin, Stephanie and I were walking through Hsinchu, we spotted this

What Would Sherlock Holmes Say?

I’m staying at the beautiful Ambassador Hotel in Hsinchu. Before the Ambassador came to town, we played ‘hotel roulette’, rotating through various 2-star hotels, but the Ambassador is truly an oasis.The staff is great, the rooms are great, and the location is great. I have had a couple of strange

Where does Emotion Come From?

One of my favorite things about travel is that I finally get the time to read. Today, I finished “blink” by Malcolm Gladwell.Quite an interesting book, about how the best decisions are sometimes the ones made instantly.Like most books I enjoy, it veers into many unexpected directions. My favorite quote regards
