Cape Town finally figured out what to do with that flyover we started building…

The butt of hack standup comedy jokes for years, our famous unfinished flyover finally has a purpose: displaying the number of days left till the 2010 Fifa World Cup kicks off, and playing host to a massive vuvuzela, which, it is rumoured, will sound off every time a goal is scored. I’m glad I live in Sea Point instead.

In the background, Cape Town's famous unfinished fly-over. A classic case of bad town planning.

Sea Point kept it chilled, but on Football Friday mornings a weird assortment of peoples parade with banners and flags and SA supporter and FIFA gear along the promenade. I love watching them and waving and drinking my coffee. The vuvuzelas play til late in the night night, and start again around 7am. No sleep for the wicked. Or even for relatively good girls like me.

Early morning celebrators make football friday happen on the promenade.

I’m starting to get excited. So why doesn’t the rest of Cape Town Central just stop whining and join me in enjoying this experience. As a colleague said, with a heavy irony: It’s like the invasion of Poland – a once in a lifetime experience.
