The purpose of this amazing trip has started out with a bang. Watching Bafana Bafana (the South African National Team) in the opening match was an absolute thrill. The entire country is bursting with excitement and pride. It is truely an amazing thing to behold. Plus in the midst of all of this soccer we managed to make friends with some lovely people from the BBC and they put us on the news. Although as far as I can make out only one household we know actually got to see the interview but regardless we had our couple minutes of fame. Another convienent bonus of meeting this great people is they were kind enough to give us a lift out of the mayhem surrounding the stadium after our first US match vs. England. All in all a great group of folks.
We are now spending a couple days inbeween matches exploring the countryside and trying to get up close and personal with some of the wildlife here. It is a bit of challenge to do all these things as there is a constant stream of matches that we want to watch.
All in all the trip is going great, we are meeting some cool and interesting people and seeing incredible things. We will get some photos up here again as soon as possible.
