complimentary slippers by Korean Airlines
they have all of the languages covered
yay for USB ports at each seat
It was neat to see my name written in Korean (this was a tag for my special meal)
I decided to fast for 12-14 hours before Korea breakfast time & I was also asleep when they came around with the second meal hence that sticker to the right side.
At the baggage claim in Seoul
The sign used to find the people arriving at the airport for the bus ride to the competition hotel. Below is my luggage
The bus, the driver and the host
he couldn't hold the sign the whole time = picture opportunity for me
I got these items from a convenience store in the airport. There was no english written but I could guess what they were. I am not sure which factors but maybe the fasting, plus this food made me feel weird, then the 1.5 hour bus ride might have aggravated things. but the items were tasty!
I rode with Team Vietnam. In the front is a TV screen that showed a Korean news channel.
items you can purchase at the hotel. FYI 1000 Korean yen = $1 USD
