One might almost have been mistaken that there was a huge drag show taking place, but Durban turned orange with fans from the Netherlands with bright, fabulous, and original outfits ahead of the Netherlands vs Japan game which Netherlands won 1-0 today.

Meet Noble, from Vancouver, (left) who joined us for a few days at the Guesthouse and has seen the various nationalities coming for the World Cup Football passing through the Guesthouse. We have been documenting the World Cup news and created a special blog for the World Cup and our international visitors ... check out the amazing pics and stories here.

One would be mistaken in thinking our SA National Football team, Bafana Bafana, were not the world favourites to win today as they take on Mexico in the opening game of the World Cup.
I have never seen so many yellow shirts in South Africa on one day... everyone - uniting the nation - are showing their colours for Bafana Bafana and South African flags are everywhere.
Fridays have been the days South Africans and schoolchildren have been allowed to show their support by wearing a Bafana shirt to school or work. In the photos from top to bottom are images painted on a garden wall just up the road from the Guesthouse showing Bafana Bafana in action, a handwritten message in wet concrete, my office staff gearing up for the opening game today, and a self-pic of myself in my car on the way to work - full time lawyer, inbetween running the Guesthouse with my partner Llewellyn, who also has his own SpecSavers Optometry practices by day.

The past few weeks have been busy ones at the Guesthouse recovering furniture, painting, choosing new furniture and curtains for some of the rooms, putting desks and safes in every room and pimping up the Pub for the visitors from around the world due for the World Cup Football event.
