Public transport arrangements for World Cup
Details on the public transport arrangements for the World Cup stadia continue to be issued in drips and drabs. The most comprehensive and user-friendly useful summary I've seen was from Prega Govender in this morrning's Sunday Times - follow this link: http://www.timeslive.co.za/sport/soccer/article477498.ece/How-to-get-there
Please note that private vehicles (including taxis) will NOT be allowed close to the stadia, so if you are planning to travel to the stadia in your own or someone else's vehicle, be prepared for a long walk (and potentially problems finding your taxi pick up after the game).
It seems like it will be a long journey to the stadia, but then with excitement at fever pitch and national pride running high, this is all part of the experience!
Let the games begin!

PRETORIA --- VOORTREKKER MONUMENT
One of Pretoria's most impressive buildings is the VOORTREKKER MONUMENT.Dedicated to the history of the Boers and how they settled in South Africa and the difficulties that they encountered, not unlike the settlers who came to America. On the walls inside the Monument are carvings detailing the history of these brave people.
Hans and I walked up the stairs of the Monument and were awarded with beautiful views of Pretoria.
I believe the entry fee was around 25 rands.
