Yes!! I won, I won! A little while ago I applied for World Cup 2010 tickets to several games here in Cape Town, and this morning I checked my ticket application status (for the umpteenth time, let me tell you), and lo and behold, this is what greets my tired eyes:

Those little green ticks, dear friends, mean “Congratulations Awesome-Person, you have successfully applied for tickets!”

So in a little over 126-odd days, I’ll be heading off to the Green Point Stadium to watch Uruguay thump France! Yeah!!

The strike by stadium workers across the country is in full swing at the moment, and I have been watching (and listening to) the strikers marching around town most of today, and yesterday. Here is a quick snap I took with my phone, leaning out the window. (Taken around 2pm today)Cape Town Strike

The strikers are demanding a 13% increase on the monthly minimum pay (which I understand is around R2500). Below is a picture I took on Friday (when there were much fewer strikers marching), but I enjoyed the irony of the marching taking place beneath the massive “CAPE TOWN – Ready to Welcome the World” poster! (Apologies for the shocking quality, I’ll try grab a better shot should the opportunity arise – I only managed to get the stragglers this time…)
