Although he has been released on a R5000 (±450 euro) bail, he has to stay in South Africa until the end of the case. I can’t help but to wonder: “What the hell was he thinking?”

“Flippin’, friggin’ road closures,” my boyfriend grumbled when I asked him how his day was. “This damn Final Draw is turning into a slight pain in the behind. Oh, and that helicopter – well, all three of them? Get used to those. They will on the go every day, for the rest of the week.”

Cape Town is doing all it can to make sure that the Final Draw of the 2010 Soccer World Cup will be super safe: 1600 police officers will patrol the streets, and they will be supported by army personnel, private security firs, disaster management, the National Intelligence Agency, and other players within the security industry. Nothing is left to coincidence, and all is done to prove to the world that South Africa is ready for the 2010 FIFA World Cup.
I have to confess – I used to be one of those 2010 world cup skeptics. I did not care about the FIFA world cup for various reasons. But it seems that even I – world cup skeptic of note – have allowed for the 2010 fifa bug to sink its fangs into my soul. I am 100% certain: South Africa will – as it once promised – host the greatest, most beautiful world cups in the history of FIFA! Mark my words!

The South African Ministry of Transport has come up with a solution: to use cruise liners as floating hotels.
