A Different View of the World' s Greatest Sport!

9th June 2010

At midday local time hundreds of thousands of people took to the streets around the country in support of Bafana-Bafana. They blew vuvuzelas, cars honked their horns, people cheered and danced in the streets.

The noise and vibe was an experience to behold all over the country.

There has also been an explosion of colour. There are flags everywhere, people are selling ones that attach to your car at the traffic lights, along with mirror socks in all the nations flags.

There are plenty of foreigners living in SA and many have their home country and the SA flag on their cars in some way, shape or form and it is quite literally every 3rd car in Cape Town that is decorated in a nations flag of some kind.

Gearing up for my first game on Friday night after watching Bafana vs Mexico at a local restaurant with my family.

Will keep you posted.

    Thanks for the update
    Don’t forget to send us pics of the opening game. We would love to see the atmosphere at your local restaurant. 😉
