As the game reserve is set up that you can drive through yourself (the map at the entrance gate is very helpful), it was amazing to see the various animals crossing the road/path in your rearview mirror.
There were some amazing animals in the iMfolozi Game Reserve – I loved watching the zebras and am reminded that no two zebras have the same stripes. This is a story we share in children’s ministry in West Africa to share how each and every one of us is unique and special to God.
Driving here is on the opposite side of the road and in the right hand seat of the vehicle, which means you shift with your left hand, though the foot pedals are the same thankfully. I think I am doing ok, but the early days, I was too much on the left hand side of the road.
We joined the approx. 2 billion people in the world and I am sure almost every South African to watch the Opening Ceremony and the first game of the FIFA World Cup – first to be held on the African continent. We jumped up when #8 made the first goal for South Africa. Even now an hour after the game we still hear our neighbours blowing the vuvulezas (long horns) outside. South Africa 1 & Mexico 1
The South Africa national football team or Bafana Bafana (a term of endearment which means ‘the Boys’) is the national team of South Africa. You see people everywhere around South Africa wearing the football/soccer jerseys. The World Cup 2010 opens this Friday in Jo’burg. Our advance team now has the right shirts – thanks to Cathy who bought them at the shopping centre on Saturday.
