My two weeks of Samsung orientation wrapped up on Friday; now the real work begins! Clearly, the highlight of the week was an overnight trip to Gyeongju in southeastern Korea, the capital of the ancient Shilla dynasty. Though little of the ancient city remains, the area is home to a couple large Buddhist temples up high on lush green mountains. The whole area was beautiful. On our way there we visited the Samsung factory where the Samsung Galaxy S3 phone is assembled (all-female workforce!) and had a fancy welcoming party at a lovely resort in Gyeongju. We cut loose with our Korean staff over drinks, dancing, and karaoke (what the Koreans call "noraebang") – the Koreans can really sing!
