It was kind of fun watching England v USA last night with a bunch of people, loyalty split fairly well between the two teams. (Although interesting to see how the loyalties played out in some families - we have US parents with kids who grew up in England and quite a few married couples with one US and one English). It's different to being in a pub with a bunch of England fans, but plenty of facepaint and team shirts to be found :-)
It's times like this that we miss Uncle Sam and the opportunity to remind him of the team for which our great goalkeeper plays for.
Anyway we are enjoying the beginnings of the World Cup here on the ship. Tonight we will join our Australian friends in the hope that our German friends may be dissappointed.
