... having a cigarette around 3 or 4am. A massive black guy in a dark trench coat passed us, he looked at us - no expression. His hands were hidden behind his back. As he passed us we realised he had a large knife behind his back - probably about a 20cm blade & certainly not a butter knife.

When we entered the stadium, we were happy to see that we were still on ...
... raining, we were all itching to get familiar with our surroundings and see what Natal had to offer. The next game was another big one we didn't want to miss. Costa Rica vs. Uruguay. Our friend Jorge grew up in Costa Rica so it was very clear who we would be routing for.
