Chapter Two: Kimchi and Gold Medals - Bus to Kyongju.

The coach was air-conditioned. Everyone had a numbered seat, but still the Koreans pushed and struggled with each other to get on first.

We had seats at the front and witnessed the lunacy of the local drivers.

The Olympic opening ceremony was on in Seoul, and the event was being transmitted live to the on-board television above the driver.
