ADDITIONAL NOTES:

England is currently blanketed with red and white flags. They hang around shops, out of council estate windows, from wheelchairs, fly from cars whizzing by... And at around 3pm on Wednesday, throngs of office workers across the city streamed toward their nearest pub. Why? The World Cup: England's football team proceeded to beat Slovenia 0:1, prompting huge cheers from everyone in the streets. (Unless, perhaps, you were busy working on your laptop.)

Above, the football scene in Shoreditch. More fever in London: photos from Martin Hanna, Colin Gregory Palmer, and Ben Roberts. And previously, our first World Cup while living in Europe: Thierry Henry scores four years ago.
