My journey from Brooklyn, New York January 4, 2007 to the World Cup Final match July 11, 2010 in South Africa. How will I get there? I have no idea. Join me as I travel around Africa, write a book, make some friends and watch the beautiful game!
The Fugees, 9 to 17 years old, play on three teams divided by age. Their story is about children with miserable pasts trying to make good with strangers in a very different and sometimes hostile place. But as a season with the youngest of the three teams revealed, it is also a story about the challenges facing resettled refugees in this country. More than 900,000 have been admitted to the United States since 1993, and their presence seems to bring out the best in some people and the worst in others.
As you may have noticed, I have not updated this blog for a while and generally I am not as enthusiastic as I used to be. This is due to several reasons:
-My original partners in this blog have all left
-I am very busy with school and other things and now that I run this blog alone, the workload is sometimes too much
-I am about to leave the country and will not be able to maintain it
-Kenyan Football is full of politics and is generally very disheartening and disappointing
I was considering deleting this blog but I still have 'feelings' for it and would hate to see it go.
