World Cup Stadium 2010, Cape Town, South Africa by night

Cape Town, South Africa...by night...is a wonderful adventure, but only in the company of a knowledgeable friend. Otherwise, it can be a dangerous place, where one can be gunned down for a cellphone. Today's newspaper tells of a student who died for just that reason -- near his college.

 

This is the World Cup 2010 Soccer Stadium. Completely covered by fabric, it makes for a beautiful night shot. Image is handheld in the wind. Needed a little digital help to calm the noise. But overall, I think it's quite pretty.

 

My thanks to Cape Townian, Richard, for showing me the night sights.

PS I am glum and heading into a major funk at the idea of leaving Africa. A piece of my soul has been yanked away by this wonderful country.

 

But it's okay -- Africa and Cape Town may have it in payment for the wonderful memories and adventures they have given to me...even the prawn at red tide. (grimace)
