... for the world cup and it was the cup final that afternoon. We’d heard that the pirates where the team to back, so as both teams were Johannesburg teams and none of us were South African, we were Orlando Pirates fans! We bought tickets outside for R100 (about £6) and also got ourselves Pirates strips and some vuvuzelas. If you thought vuvuzelas were loud during the world cup, imagine 58,000 plus a hangover!

We arrived into Pretoria quite early and headed to our hostel in Hatfield. Whilst Hatfield is a nice, quite studenty area, on all the buildings and houses leading up to our hostel there were electric fences. Was really bizarre, especially with such homely buildings behind them. Our hostel lady had children living with her there, and whilst they were young at the moment, it was hard to imagine what it would be like for them growing ...
