Yesterday Soccer World Cup tickets became available to locals over the counter. This is Africa. Not everyone has a laptop or access to a PC.
One of our local banks was the vendor and queues miles long quickly formed as fans lined up way before sunrise to buy tickets.
One male fan apparently died while waiting to make a purchase. It's believed of natural causes.
Those who didn't get tickets yesterday are back today with cooler boxes and portable chairs hoping to get luckier today.
Each day we tick off is one more day closer to this Soccer World Cup. I overhear people talking all day long about where they will be or asking who is going. The big question is how many visitors will come?
