Love them or hate them, they have become the unofficial musical instrument of South Africa, and integral to the 2010 FIFA World Cup. Personally, I find them noisy and anti-social, but despite myself I love them!

Viva South Africa.

Go Bafana Bafana!

A Bafana Bafana fan supporting the team at the fanpark in Belville. Bafana Bafana drew with Mexico 1-1. I went to the fan Park yesterday to watch the festivities before the match, and the match itself. It was crowded and noisy, yet one of the most friendly and exciting environments that I have ever been in. It was like a massive group of friends getting together to party!

Here are a few more pictures.

The Factory

Cds 153 TheFactory

I am not sure why, but this building freaks me out a little. It is an old factory in Port Elizabeth that has been converted into offices. However, it looks to me like the sort of place that a Stephen King movie might be set. I don’t think I would be entirely happy working there.

Strawberry Cheesecake

I just couldn’t resist taking this picture of my dessert. Strawberry cheesecake served in a martini glass. It was really yummy!

If you want some, you will have to visit the Port Elizabeth Golf Club, where I attend the Algoa Toastmasters 50th birthday celebration function.
