In a few short hours I’ll be jetting off to South Korea; my sleep experiment to avoid jet lag has felt like more of a lesson in self-control and trying to concentrate on work whilst pretty fatigued. Somehow I’ve managed to get up successive nights 1 hour earlier each day (this morning was 2 am) and attempted to sleep 1 hour later. I’m not quite sure how well I’ve managed to fool my body clock, the next couple of days should be interesting!
Since I’m flying via Dubai I won’t arrive in Seoul till later tomorrow – I’ll try and post an update here when I do. Since Korea is the king of consumer electronics I’ll leave you with a few tidbits of life on the other side:
- WiFi equipped subway (not coming to a train near you)
- Robot city being built (aka 101 in the Animatrix)
- Different approaches to marketing (no comment!)
- Getting a robot to host a wedding (seriously)
Update (02/09): I made it ok to Korea, this time without any drama!! This morning I’m feeling pretty jet-lagged (aching all over) so it doesn’t look like my sleep experiment did much good. Hopefully, it will pass in the next 24 hours. More soon 🙂
