Getting ready for World Cup 2010


On picture you can see me somewhere between Robben Island and Green Point Stadium in the picture taken from Signal Hill. On top you find the new stadium in Durban and again Green Point stadium from a different angle. At bottom of picture you find our World Cup tickets but only four of them are however dedicated to my use. Can't wait for World Cup to start, only too bad Sweden did not make it but will cheer for the African teams especially those coached by Svennis and Lagerb├Ąck together with Bafana Bafana.

Nice day in Cape Town


On Saturday me and Heidi went in to Cape Town where we had a lovely day enjoying the nice weather. Otherwise it is getting a bit cold as it is now winter here but when sun is shining and it is not too much wind it is really lovely.

Durban


In Durban for IST Africa conference and this is the view from my hotel room. Met up with a colleague from Meraka on plane who took me for a small city tour before checking in at hotel. Durban seem to have a nice city pulse with a nice beach front. At arrival my bag did not arrive with same plane but hope to get it soon.

Albino day


Prime minister was in town for a big albino event. After all the albino killings in the country where body parts been used for medicin there is a need for people to integrate the albino community into the society and take a strong stand against these horrifying actions. Was nice to see all the Albinos performing in the eyes of thousands of people. Joensuu student Jussi was on podium with minister showing the limited difference in appearance between a Finnish person and an albino :-)

Bachelor party


Walid who recently got married in India did not get a bachelor party, so prior to his reception in Iringa I got involved to make sure it happened. One of the new things that was invented to spice up the occasion was shooting eggs at him with sling shots. Most of the eggs broke before reaching the target and only few hit the target but everyone had fun in the process :-)
