World Cup Fever

Playing football in the Dana Biosphere in Jordan - by photographer Kristen Gill

You don’t have to like sports to understand the concept of the World Cup. Sport is a part of every culture. And, to see an international sport played by so many countries with such passion is awesome!

Here is one of my favorite pictures from my time in Jordan. This is Khalid Daifallah. His mother runs a bread baking business from her tent supplying Feynan Ecolodge, and his father is the imam at the local mosque. He loves to play football!

I hope you all enjoy the sportsmanship and camaraderie of the 2014 World Cup taking place in Brazil during the next month. As for me, I picked Spain to win (not likely) and Belgium as my team to follow/support. Ireland didn’t make it this year, which is who I would usually root for. I also hope the USA team does well this year, too. Best of luck to all of the players and supporters. Viva World Cup!

Adventure on,

Kristen
