There is almost a sense that time stops when you leave the country and go off to a place in which the media presence is minimal, and in a language you can neither speak nor read. You get a very good reality check as the obsessions of the world of sport, the daily patterns of wins and losses, the battles over money and egos, all fade quickly to the background.
