A few weeks ago, Pamela (LGO '12) and I got a chance to go to Shanghai to visit Intel customers. The local Intel team did a wonderful job hosting us. One of our customer visits included a line tour, and it was fascinating to see the manufacturing of notebooks. Visiting all those plants during 1st year of LGO trained us well in making observations and asking the right questions relevant to our project topics. Not only did the local team help set up our visits and meetings with customers but they also showed us around the city. Throughout the week, we had dinners and got to sight see in areas including Hong Mei Road, Tian Zi Fang, Yuyuan Garden, and the Bund. Pamela and I extended our trip through the weekend and also visited Xintiandi. The combination of academia, industry, and leisure made this trip a great way to visit China for the first time.
