Friday was fantastic! The vibe was like nothing else I've ever experienced. Strangers dancing and singing together in the streets, vuvuzelas creating a bee-like buzz that could be heard wherever we went in Cape Town and everyone dressed up in SA flags and soccer gear from all classes and ages. We watched the opening ceremony at home then took the train to Long Street. The train ride was one of the highlights of our day with our group leading the entire carriage in song! It was such a uniting, fun ride and a great start to our world cup experience. Then we headed to a friend's flat in Adderly Street with a view of the buzzing crowds and fan park! We looked quite funny entering the fancy quiet lobby in all our gear but the receptionist was a great sport and we headed up to the 14th floor and watched Bafana score the first goal of the World Cup 2010.
I can't wait for more days like this one!
