The last fatal shark attack on Fish Hoek beach had happened just weeks before, in November. I was shocked and surprised, as it was totally unexpected and out of the ordinary.

Vuvuzela etiquette for the 2010 FIFA World Cup™

The vuvuzela, much like the 1995 Rugby World Cup victory in South Africa, is a unifying force for South Africans. In the case of the vuvuzela, the common purpose appears to be blowing as loudly as possible into a plastic tube that, when played correctly, sounds like a sheep being “waterboarded” by a particularly enthusiastic US marine.
