World Trip 2006: Day 3 & 4: Johannesburg, South Africa

I went to the first 2 days of the South Africa vs. Australia Test Match at the Wanderers Cricket Ground.   I got fantastic seats, right behind the bowler’s arm. This is a great ground to watch cricket.   They have a golf course just outside which is stunning.   The houses in this area are amusing.   It won’t surprise that this used to be a ‘whites’ only area.   The great thing at this ground is you can go onto the field during the breaks and view the wicket.

I managed to get a photo of Langer’s only ball in this match, just good timing (from me, not Langer).   I actually saw him during the lunch break get taken to the hospital.   He had blood on his top and could barely stand; I don’t think he will be playing in this match again.   You can also cook you own food at this ground.   Looks like a good idea to me.    During the nights I’ve been catching up with people returning from overland tours, can’t wait to commence mine on Tuesday.   Well tomorrow I’m off to the Apartheid Museum which should be interesting to see if it provides any balance on South Africa’s history.
