Photo’s from Soccer City

As promised in my last post, here are some pics from our sensational Soccer World Cup experience, starting with one of the trio sitting next to us on the train.

“Ke Nako!” (It’s Time!)

Tonight’s the night we head to South Africa’s flagship stadium, Soccer City near Soweto, Johannesburg, for the quarter-final match between Uruguay and Ghana. With all due respect and apologies to Uruguay, we’ll be yelling for Ghana, as Africa’s only remaining hope for a first ever semifinal spot in a World Cup tournament!

We have stunning seats, huge thanks to a friend of ours, as well as the disappointed English fan who he inherited them from. They are certainly not going to waste 🙂

She was rolling around so much this morning that it was tricky to take a shot, until she hopped onto the window sill for a moment’s pause. Here she is, perfectly positioned for some fill-in flash photography:
