Highlights: South Africa vs. Australia Test Match
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) as he got knocked out. 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 talking to them about their experiences, O can’t wait to commence mine on Tuesday.
Tomorrow I’m off to the Apartheid Museum which should be interesting to see if it provides any balance on South Africa’s history.
