Soccer fever!

So I awoke this morning to sounds of vuvuzelas (those plastic trumpet shaped horns you see in the pics below, that make a lot of noise!) resonating round the city, in fact I think they were being played all night long! 
Today’s the big kick off day for the Soccer World Cup and everyone is totally soccer mad, wearing their countries gear, flags, wigs, the works… the atmosphere is amazing! The whole country is basically shutting down at midday in preparation of the Opening ceremony and first game. It’s sure to be an AWESOME weekend here, I’m so excited and so I’m wishing you a happy one too!!

    I'm soccer mad too! And I know what a great mood you have now in South Africa. 4 years ago the world cup was played here in Germany and it was the greatest summer I've ever had! Everyone was so happy and friendly and there where parties on the streets every day. I wish you such a great time, please enjoy eveything! So, I hope your team wins today and Germay on Sunday! I'm so excited too! Yeahhhh!!!!!
