    I am South African and have greatly enjoyed seeing the world cup through an American’s eyes. I am dismayed though that you have yet to close off this blog properly..as in, after all is said and done, what are your final thoughts of the whole thing. And by that I don’t just mean the world cup (which in 3rd world terms was a spectacular success), but on South Africa as a whole. The international media was lambasting South Africa before the WC began..I don’t remember reading or hearing about a single positive thing from overseas. I’m sure you also had perceptions and stereotypes or whatever that were either re-inforced or broken while you were here. Please do share those..
