July 07, 2010

Today we woke up to a wonderful surprise that the Internet is working again. Feverishly, we have been sharing the laptop to check face book and answer the emails from 3 days ago.

Tanja and I are in our last hotel. It is in a place called Summerstrand, that is located right on the Indian Ocean. It sits in a calm cove and has quiet "small" town atmosphere. The relaxation will do us some good. [My little German Princess is still a bit under the weather today. { day 3 so far.} I have nicknamed the illness the cape cough. Many visitors here, seem to have this dry non- productive bark.] The water is warm, but still not inviting enough to get us to wade out into the great whites' front porch. Port Elizabeth's local news reports not only include traffic, temperature and local happenings; but they also give the updated shark sitings.

We will try to report again soon, assuming that we have a Internet connection.
Tonight, we will be watching the semi final match between Germany and Spain at a local restaurant here in downtown PE. The winner will play on Sunday in the Championship against Holland, who beat Uruguay last evening.
On Saturday , the 10th we have our last set of tickets to see the game live. Secretly, we want to see the Germans play in person, but of course we are looking forward to seeing the best team end up in Jo burg...
I hope everyone in the USA had a awesome Fourth of July.

10:45 PM
Well my dream has come true. Germany sadly just lost to Spain 1-0 in the semifinal match in Durban... We mentioned earlier that we watched the match in a pub. Saturday is now bitter sweet as we will physically see the German's play Uruguay at 08:30pm on Saturday evening for the consolation match [3rd/4th place].
