  • Soccer City

    Yes – I did it, I went to a soccer game. The person who doesn’t bother looking Soccer Tournaments, went to a soccer game.

    Orlando Pyrates against the Kaizer Chiefs, who unlikely won 3:1.
    Part of our workers a very unsatisfied, but life goes on!

    We parked the car and drove by bus to soccer city. Japanese circumstances, people packed into very small amount of space. But at least they were singing, honking on their vuvuzelas and having fun.
    On our way home we were surprised by the crowd of people waiting for the bus, so we tried to walk back to our car, but after 30 minutes we got a taxi bus, a maybe 25 year old bus, hardly not serviced, packed with a lot of people getting its way through south african traffic. The lady in the bus just said, next time you might win, but you better change for the Kaizer Chiefs.

  • Soccer Tournament

    What can you do at the weekend in a Township?
    Yes – you can play soccer. The local bakery organized a small tournament. 5 teams, ten minutes games.
    200 Rand to join – and in the end you could win an astonishing price of 800 Rand.

    Within the first round we lost nearly every game, only one draw could keep our temper.
    But the second last team in front of us resigned, thus we could continue. And we got in the quarter, semi and the final.
    And we won! Ohh Yes. Hell yeah!!

    But: South Africans do hava a pee every where they need or want to.
    In the middle of the field, next to my car, even in front of me (I’ve to admit, it had been a little child of 2 years)
    After a couple of drinks I new why, there is just no public toilet in a township!
