So then, FIFA have made their decision, and have selected South Africa to host the 2010 World Cup. Excellent news as far as I’m concerned, because, although I’d have loved to have visited Tunisia or Morocco just as much, the journey to South Africa from London should be a great one.
There’s a curious echo of the trip to Korea, during which I found my grandfather’s grave in a small village in Uzbekistan, in that my grandmother’s grave is at the foot of Kilimanjaro, in a little village called Tengeru, where she, my father and my uncle spent the majority of the war years after their ordeals in the (former) Soviet Union. It’ll be wonderful to see her grave on the way to South Africa, if I can find it…
