The World Cup and Southern Africa

During the world cup I will be traveling around South Africa. After the tournament is over, I plan to travel over ground about 1800 miles up to Nairobi, where I will fly back to the states from in early August.

In this blog I hope to share my experiences, thoughts, and stories. I am not completely sure why I am here, I hope to know by the time I leave. I will focus on a few topics:
1) How do we develop people? (Education, Values, etc..)
2) Is there any absolute truth? I hope so.
3) Football

This will not be clean and edited, it is my journal. I will write very much in stream of consciousness, most statements I make are questions that I wish answered. Please feel free to add to my inner-dialogue.

Wafahamu Keswahili?(sp?)

So I am at the best internet cafe I have been to in a long time, but I cannot use my flash drive, so I can't post my blogs. I am in Mbeya, Tanzania...Tanzania is the first country where I need to ask if people speak english. Now I wish I had worked harder at learning swahili. Most people still speak some english, but it would be nice to have better Swahili skills. I could have caught a train to Dar Es Salaam, which would have put me up over 30 consecutive hours of traveling, that would not have been much of a problem, but I want to see the country, and a good portion of that would have been in the dark. So I will break it up on buses and hopefully get there early afternoon on Sunday. Peace for now.
