Back Home ...

Now finally back from my short trip to Johannesburg, South Africa. Flying out Monday overnight, returning Friday morning after another overnight flight (all Eco). But thanks to Turkish Airlines - including the short stop-over in Istanbul was worth it as the seating comfort in Turkish's economy class is far better than Lufthansa's - as is the food and especially the entertainment system, the service ... almost everything. And luckily the Turkish Airline's employees didn't go on strike in Thursday :-)

But after running now 6 internal Oracle Database 12c: Upgrade, Migrate and Consolidate workshops in the US and in EMEA I've learned a lot from our over 180 participants doing the full Hands-On part of the workshop.

I'm really looking forward to the release date :-)

Some impressions from Seoul and Beijing

There was not much time left to walk around and take some pictures during our fully packed workshop week in Seoul and Beijing. But as I have my camera almost always in my pocket I took some pictures ... :-)


Seoul View


Seoul Food ... yes ... BEEF ... wonderfully thin sliced beef on the barbecue grid


Tumbling Seoul
(that's exactly how I felt in the mornung after our night at Peter, Paul and Mary's (see below)).


Modern Beijing ... very modern


Well ... or even more modern ...


There's always a traffic jam ... simply too many cars ... and some bycicles left as well


And if you don't know where to park your Lambo... no prob ... just park it in the middle of two pedestrian crosswalks on an intersection ... if you drive the right car policemen will simply ignore your intersting habbits ;-)
