We're on our way!

The bags are packed,the passports in hand, and we are off for an incredible journey to experience the wonders of South Africa and the greatest sports spectacle on Earth, the World Cup.

By this time tomorrow, Ava, Salome and I will be on our way to Johannesburg, our first trip to Africa.

We've been watching the first week of the tournament with interest: from the U.S.A.'s improbable tie with England, to Mexico's triumph over France. Today's U.S.A.-vs. Slovenia contest was action-packed, and the debate rages among pundits and fans as to whether the Americans' third goal near the end of the match was properly disallowed. (The consensus seems to be the ref blew the call big-time.)

Once we arrive in South Africa, we'll be posting dispatches from the road, photos, observations, etc., when time and Internet access allows.

And later this summer, check out my upcoming travel book, Dear Guests, Beware of Wild Monkeys, available at fine Web sites everywhere!
