As with previous championships in Japan, players were treated very generously. Every evening we had gorgeous food in Incheons's finest restaurants. Vegetarians, however, suffered. We had either Bulgoggi (sliced meat) or Kalbi (sliced meat) and on the last day we had sliced meat to be wrapped in salad leaves. Since I like meat, I had no problem with Korean food, but at one occasion I tried the raw green pepper, which was served as a side dish and spent the rest of the meal getting rid of the burning in my mouth. The next time I stayed content with Kimchi, which now tasted very mild.
We also saw various performances of Korean drummers, a Chinese
Light Show just in front of Munhak Stadium, and had a one day
trip to Seoul. But most of our "leisure time" we spent either
eating or on the bus.
