It went great….
I hope they keep the FanWalk for other special events in Cape Town because it truly was a huge hit with the crowd!
This is going to be a post of just pictures with just a bit of explanation here and there – hope you don’t mind…..
(Put your mouse over the pic to get an description.)
Driving there we saw many interesting things – but the one that we just had to take a pic of is this one!
For months before the whole World Cup started letters and information leaflets were giving to the residents and people driving around the Stadium. People were warned that if you didn’t have a residence permit plainly displayed on your car to give you permission to park in certain areas, your car will be towed. Not only would they need to pay to get it released – they would also be issued with a fine. OUCH! Well we saw around every single corner that they were NOT joking!
When we arrived the people were already streaming towards the stadium and this was 5 hours before the match started. Yikes!
Then we did the actual FanWalk itself – joining thousands of people intent on having fun! A crazy experience!
Call me unpatriotic… but that vuvuzela makes my eyes water…
All these people and not one jerk amongst them all…. brilliant!
This is without a doubt my favourite shot because it shows the beautiful city that I work in with the stunningly designed Cape Town Stadium in the background.
And last but not least – two happy smiling ladies who loved being part of this incredible experience.
Sjoe – this was a long post to put together…. don’t think I’m going to try this again in a hurry….
Have a great day everybody!
