Well enough of the football, it is bringing a tear to my eye just thinking about it. The flight from Sydney to Joberg was your usual long flight, a couple of movies and a few beers and plenty of sleep. I watched Invictus which is bloody brilliant, Matt Damon and Morgan Freeman are superb. And i also watched aussie Rom/Com "I Love You Too". Pretty good.
So, flew into Durban straight away (nearly missed the connecting flight after not being able to find my luggage) and when i arrived i noticed my padlock was missing from my luggage. They must have cut it open. Weird. My friends Em and Laurelle picked me up in a taxi and we went straight to the pub (after a quick shower and bag drop off at B and B) to watch the England v USA match. Best headline from the world Cup so far... "Hand Of Clod" referring to the England goal keeper Green. Ouch, The Sun can be nasty in London.
I am planning on going to this indoor Wave Park today and then to the markets along the beach and then to the Fan Fest (Massive screens and stages to watch the Football) of which their are two here.
Weather and surroundings are very similar to Sunshine Coast QLD. The B and B which we are staying at is brilliant. The service is great and the omlettes, deelish!
Hopefully the Socceroos are just leading the other teams into a false sense of security. Hopefully.
