Weekly Photo Challenge: Culture

Culture ~ {The attitudes and behaviour that are characteristic of a particular social group or organization}

Rugby ~ {A form of football played with an oval ball}

The people of my country are sports crazy.  Considering our volatile past, the different cultures always looked to music and sports as an outlet.  In an act of bravery, our then President, Nelson Mandela united the National Rugby Team and ultimately united a nation when we won the 1995 Rugby World Cup.

A proud moment!  Nelson Mandela congratulating the captain, Francois Pienaar.

My husband is a huge rugby fan.  In August 2010, the All-Blacks played South Africa at Soccer City.  I went along for fun.

It was electrifying to see all the cultures come together to support our National Team.
