Its a Full house in Rio, yet it's gonna be an arrival to empty stadiums for the Thumb!
Germany v Argentina...
An amazing finale, all the countries the Thumb has passed through en route have been electric with World Cup fever. I honestly did all within my power to get to Brazil on time. The thumb must be around 8000km from Rio. There is still a huge distance to cover. The essence of The Magic Thumb is always in the journey, so not to worry...I will get a boat to Columbia and continue to forge on to Rio. Met a whole host of peeps yesterday, 4 tangible scenarios are now in play, the likelihood of getting a free ride is tiny, however we could get passage at cost price, all the sailors offering passage can't take the hit...as charmed as they were, it's not a lift down the motorway. It can take up to 7 days to get to Cartagana from Portbelo and all need to take a handful of passengers at $550, we will see. Caroline's still under the weather...she's been a lot chirpier today, so fingers crossed she's on the mend.
