Today South Africa is beginning the celebrations for the World Cup and Bafana Bafana, with Sandton in an absolute state of awesome chaos as people go wild and blow on their vuvuzelas. (Thanks to @AkiAnastasiou for this great aerial shot that he posted on TwitPic, saying “United We Shall Stand”).

World Cup time is coming, and if I am lucky, I will get to watch some of the proceedings from the airport on Friday. I hope you guys are all really excited, this is really a time for us to all remember.
