Our teams didn’t fare well in the truck pool, but it was still a blast watching some of the matches. We watched the final game on a projector screen in a large, dark room filled to the brim with people in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. The power kept flickering on and off, but thankfully managed to stay on for most of the game. Mark and I were rooting for the Netherlands, as were most of the people we were watching with. It just wasn’t meant to be. Always a bridesmaid, never a bride. Congratulations to Spain, and to South Africa for being such a great host! How cool to have been in Africa for this World Cup.

It’s World Cup time! Although we’re not in South Africa, it’s still exciting for us to be in Africa — the buzz is felt throughout. We’ve started a World Cup pool on the truck, which makes watching the games more interesting, especially since there is no Canadian team. Our picks were drawn at random. We’ve got Slovenia, Mexico and Ivory Coast. Go Ivory Coast!
