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…
