Wrapping it up

































Well gang, just like the German National team, we are preparing for our exist from South Africa. Last night we attended the 3rd/4th place soccer match here in PE. There were just over 36,000 locals dressed up: sporting face paint and blowing their horns. The players surprisingly played technically well. I can only imagine how lacking in luster and enjoyment they would have to preform for a bronze medal. Many talking heads world wide thought that this team would of added gold to their resume.


Although the day started out like a warm fall day in mid west of America, the night ended up being cool and misty like, Seattle. The international press has reported that a number of the players were not on the pitch last evening due, to having the same flu-like symptoms that Tanja has been complaining about for the last week.


Germs, germs, everywhere! Of course in winter the incidence of colds increases... plus I bet, adding ~700,000 new people from over the world into a small [space] country for only a month. It sounds like a proper petri dish to test all of our immune systems.


Tomorrow we head back to London and then to Chicago on Wednesday evening. It has been an amazing journey. I want to Thank you all for walking side along in our lovely holiday. We had the opportunity to do a little more than scratch the surface on issues. I still have a few more stories to add, but this was blog did have a good skeleton of our travels.


Have a great summer.
