South African Expedition 2000
Thursday 27 January
This morning, we went up to Table Mountain. From the bottom, you dont get a real idea how big it is. But as you get closer, you realise that its massive.
Theres a regular cable car to the top, and when you do get there, it is as flat as a pancake. The views around the bay are spectacular, and you can see all the way down the coast to the Cape of Good Hope. Lunch was had at the cafe, before we headed back in to town.
We set off by train to see the game between GB and South Africa. We entered the ground by the players entrance (in error, honest) and were quite please with ourselves at having saved on the entrance fee. When we discovered it would have only cost us 20p to get in anyway, the excitement of getting in illegally was somewhat tarnished.
Many of the Barmy Army had also come along to watch, and so it was a healthy crowd that saw GB come out on top 2-1, with Jane Smith and Jane Sixsmith scoring the goals.
Afterwards, we went on to the pitch to meet the players. A few photos were taken, free beer was handed out from the sponsors, and I even managed to a kiss of Mandy Nicholson, a player whod I fancied for years. It was just a shame that Purdy Miller wasnt playing - she top totty too.
Dave duly turned up and told us that hed managed to wangle us a lift back in to town with the South African physio. She was hot too. What a night !!! She dropped us off at a seafood restaurant she recommended, and we thanked her more graciously for her hospitality.
Had a top draw seafood meal, with some cracking wine. We were all totally lashed, but feeling good too.
Surprisingly went back to the Irish Rover and then got w##kered again.
