Hi from Cape Town!

Hello from Cape Town...Spain 0, Portugal 0 at halftime.

Flew in from Johannesburg today, very different feel in this city. It's very green, whereas JoBurg is dry and brown, big mountains here dropping to the sea, dramatic shoreline, vibrant waterfront (think Bayside times 100)..Stadium is very nice, right down on the waterfront. Seem to be equal number of Spanish and Porguese fans.

Funny story: Sitting right next to me on the plane were two college-aged guys, turns out they are UM students from Algeria! Live on Brickell! On of them is a journalism student, and I teach in the UM journalism school on the side. Small world, after all!

Enjoy the rest of the game. I have a feeling Portugal will win.

I'm jealous. For years always wanted to go to Cape Town having seen the photos. Enjoy it as much as you can.
