Local food

I stayed in a hotel near the exhibition centre that had a nice Thai restaurant, but most lunches and dinners were with the team and therefore primarily consisted of duck rice. If I could get them to go street cuisine, then we could branch out into satay and rice.

I managed to get them, only very occasionally, to go to the Hard Rock Café or other western venues but then they spent much of the next day complaining that Western food made their teeth ache, their food was of course all usually pre-cut and diced for them.

ASIDE: My hotel was used by a large group of middle-range tennis players on a circuit that played two separate yet consecutive tournaments across two weeks. From Tuesday onwards more and more of them were back at the hotel having been knocked out. I got in to a card school with a number of them, most notably Jeremy Bates, who was on a good run and arrived a little later into each week. But they all soon had a great deal of time on their hands for card-playing.
