#159. Take a drive to Soccer City where the opening and closing games of the Fifa World Cup will take place in 2010. With 227 days to go until kickoff the stadium on the outskirts of Soweto is close to completion. We viewed it yesterday under a broody Joburg sky — the colours of the calabash set against the mine dumps on either side (wanted that in my photo but the rain couldn’t have cared less) make the stadium melt into the landscape. Beautiful.
