The Dutch sure lived up to their reputation as fierce soccer supporters last night. My goodness what a lively lot they are. There can't be many people left in Holland. At least half of the Hollanders have to be in Cape Town.
The fan walk was a sea of orange. Initial expectations for visitors to South Africa for the 2010 Soccer World Cup were around half a million people. After the Eugene Terreblance murder and Julius Malema's utterances expectations dropped to 300K people. Current visitor figures are just over 450K people and apparently flights are filling up fast with last minute bookings.
