Me & Twenty10: A Woohaa! Moment

What can I say other than “it was a helluva party”? A whole lot more. Yesterday’s festivities around Final Draw of the 2010 FIFA World Cup were amazing, fantastic, great, mind-blowing, invigorating, and unforgettable. It was WOOHAA!

From noon until midnight, Cape Town’s Long Street was one dancing, singing, and chanting river of South African flags of all shapes and sizes, vuvuzelas, soccer hats, and umbrellas. Some of South Africa’s best bands and artists showed Cape Town and the rest of the world what they were worth: solid gold. And so did the crowd. Around 40.000 people, instead of the 16.000 that were expected, turned FIFA’s Fan Fest in Cape Town into the biggest and best party Africa had ever seen. And it went pretty much without any hick-ups.

“Let this be a lesson to the world, that Africa can do it,” said Brian from the township of Khayelitsha.  “We will surprise the world! The World Cup of 2010 will be the best World Cups the world has ever seen!”

I could write more – much more – about how Cape Town and the world celebrated the Final Draw. But sometimes, pictures say more than words so enjoy the ones below. For more images, please click here:
