If the world is focused in on the World Cup right now, then South Africa has been taken over by it. and to be honest, I am LOVING it.
I love the sport we Americans call soccer, while most of the rest of the world calls it football. I love the energy of it. I love the global community created by it. I love the passion found in small children everywhere in the world as they play it. I love watching the games here with the wild and crazy crowds. I even love the overwhelming noise of the vuvuzela that goes almost nonstop.
It is good to be in this beautiful, friendly country called South Africa for this incredible event called the World Cup.
