The end of the trip; the beginning of the travelogue

At Soccer City, after the Final

My trip has come to an end.  I ended up watching six World Cup 2010 matches: In the round of 16, I saw Argentina vs. Mexico and Holland vs. Slovakia; in the quarter-finals I saw Holland vs. Brazil and Germany vs. Argentina; I saw the Holland vs. Uruguay semi-final; and, most thrillingly, I saw the Spain vs. Holland final.

I met dozens of fascinating and wonderful people, made many friends, and learned a lot.  I thoroughly enjoyed visiting one of the most exciting and beautiful countries in the world, and saw its four biggest cities: Johannesburg, Durban, Port Elizabeth and Cape Town.

After a few days in South Africa I realized this trip was far too enjoyable to spend writing and blogging, particularly as I wanted to write thoughtful pieces and not just quick blogposts with trivial details.

I will now begin writing my travelogue and chronicling my adventures.  Stay tuned…

    Yalla I can’t wait to read, but before that, I want to hear all about it over a drink Mr.

    What else is there to do in 3amaan? Presumably, though, your travelogue will begin by recounting your lay-over in ash-Sham?
