World Cup Fever

Beyond travel, today was a relatively simple day. 17 hours on a plane, dinner while watching the France/Uruguay game and now headed to bed. Tomorrow is US vs England. Despite the small exposure to details of South Africa thus far, it is clear that World Cup fever is everywhere. Almost every sign is soccer related, 80% of people are wearing a jersey that is green and gold, you never stop hearing vuvuzelas. Our flight crew had the fever as well - this is a photo of them stopping work to stare out the plane window as we passed Soccer City during the SA game. Managed to convince my wife to pose with one of them as well. Looking forward to tomorrow.
