Yesterday the Dutch played the 1/8th final against Slovakia at 4pm in Durban's gorgeous Moses Mabhida stadium. Madhiba was the leader of the South African Communist Party, but he was also important in the development of the South African Congress of Trade Unions (SACTU) and the ANC; especially their armed wing Umkhonto we Sizwe. Btw, for the people who haven't read Nelson Mandela's "Long Road to Freedom", please please do! Anyhow, we dressed up in orange, drank beer, sang to bad Dutch music, and won: 2-1. The next stop is is Port Elizabeth around 1,000km south where we will play Brazil on July 2.
And we're back in Durban.
We had great seats. He! Jack van Gelder.
And what an absolutely gorgeous stadium!
