Round-a-Jozi

Whenever we get guests from out of town, we always take them around Joburg.  One of the stops is always Soweto.  It is just so humbling to drive through Vilakazi Street.  It is street where Nelson Mandela and Desmond Tutu lived as children.  It is also the only street in the world where two Nobel Prize winners was raised.

Another stop on our tour is the National Soccer Stadium…or the FNB Stadium.  Although people affectionately refer to it as Soccer City as it was called during the FIFA Soccer World Cup 2010.

I am not a sports fan but earlier this year, we attended a rugby game here, and was quite weary to go as I suffer from claustrophobia.  It can house 90 000 people and I never felt squeezed once.  The layout is great and spacious.  And doesn’t it look like a space ship at night?
