Posting will be light for the next week or so (though I am going to try to stockpile some content on Monday and Tuesday) as the big travel week begins. A sense of where I'll be:
Monday: Odessa to San Antonio.
Wednesday: San Antonio to Washington, Washington to Rome.
Thursday: Rome to Addis Ababa
Friday: Addis Ababa to Johannesburg. I should land about three hours before the South Africa-Mexico game. With a little luck I'll get to my bed and breakfast in Sandton (in Joburg's northern suburbs, possibly the most affluent community in all of South Africa, a place I have never stayed and don't belong, but my preferred Melville is fully booked.)
Saturday: Johannesburg to Rustenburg (and hopefully back later that night after the US-England game.)
Sunday: Joburg to Pretoria for Serbia-Ghana game, and hopefully back.
Monday: Joburg to Cape Town. I'll be in Cape Town for five days before heading back to Joburg for the Slovenia-USA game at Ellis Park.
