Germany to Cape Town for 2010 World Cup

World Cup fever has taken over South Africa and fans have even driven to Cape Town from Germany to follow their national team in Durban, then Port Elizabeth and to the final (?). And they made the journey through Europe and Africa in a bright red Fire Truck! Check their blog here.

Not to be outdone, Netherlands fans, who have now notched up 2 wins, are sporting their Cape Town 2010 orange shirts and an orange brigade has been following them around South Africa.

JC in Cape Town

There's an awesome wine farm in the Stellenbosch wine district in the Cape - JC le Roux, South Africa's first wine farm that produces only sparkling wine - both the commercial wines with co2 injected as well as the time honoured Cap Classique method, the traditional french method of making Champagne.

We took a range of their sparkling wines to Durban on the east coast of South Africa and held a little sparkling wine and nougat tasting. In the pics are Capetonians Yvan and Quinton and in the second photo Dave and Llewellyn from Durban View Guesthouse.
