A Weekend to Remember!!
Hello Everyone! I’ve missed sharing with you last week’s adventures, but everything is starting to get frantic, so I didn’t have all the time I wanted. Let’s see if I can catch up today…
In terms of new and exciting moments, the business week didn’t reserve anything special, there was a lot of work that needed to be done for our first presentation (which was great), and a lot of preparations for our final presentation next week.
The best thing during the week was the match between Polokwane City and Free State Stars, in the Peter Mokeba stadium. We were excited because it said it was to be hosted in the New Peter Mokeba Stadium, but it ended-up being on the old one, which is a very nice and cozy stadium, feels like the old football days.
The game was very very bad, but there were some ok moments and the crowd was excited with their Vuvuzelas!
When the weekend came, things started to get exciting!
Friday night some of us went for a dinner in Ambience, a very nice place close to the hotel, with good food at a very reasonable price.
Saturday morning Pam, Phuong, Reg and I went for a bike ride in the Polokwane Game Reserve, a 2:30hr ride, turned into a 6hr adventure, which we were all exhausted, but was extremely rewarding.
I spotted my first wild animals, Wildebeests, Antelopes, Kudus, Ostriches, Zebras and Giraffes!
In the evening, we went to Cubaña to watch the Springboks game (all 11 that wee in Polokwane — Cesar was in Jo’burg). It was a very close game, All Blacks winning by only 2pts, but the Best of all was the funny moments and the pleasant companies!
Sunday was the big day that everyone was expecting so far, The Walk with the Lions!! I won’t go into too many details as there are no words to describe the sensation of amusement and awe to be so close and touching the King! — The Cheetahs are freaking awesome as well, they’re one of the most beautiful animals I have ever seen!!!
