Well, girls, I made it to South Africa. And the 25-hour plane ride from Connecticut was worth it. The people are beautiful and the countryside is nice. It's really amazing how this country has embraced the World Cup, especially after all the skepticism expressed by the rest of the world. And you know what? It wouldn't have mattered if they weren't ready -- even now, through all the traffic and crowds and dust, the vibe is still one of acceptance and hospitality, without prejudice. Ah, irony.
Kiss your mommy for me.
