Clean sweep

Aussie victory yesterday at The Wanderers, with a tense finish, and the first white wash home loss to South Africa since 1895....the same year Castle Lager was established...hee hee.

Day Three of the test was up and down...looking like we would lose, looking like we could wrap it up that day, then going off for bad light in the end, with 44 runs to win, and two batsman down for the count, and 5 wickets down...

A rather large night ensued, starting at The Wanderers Club across the road from the ground, with the ability to see the sun set behind the ground (Why did we go off for bad light when the sun was stil out, I hear you ask??!! Very good question!!).

Drinks back at the hostel got out of hand very quickly, and I blame Evil Johan behind the bar here for my unfit state the next morning, for all his spirit mixing!

Too hungover to fully appreciate and enjoy the last hour of the test match, I was there nonetheless. Massive hour of play, and the run down of the required 44 runs. Plenty of tension when wickets fell, and pressure mounted. But all good in the end, with some very Trent Bridge-like last stand batting from Bing and Kaspa.

Last night a group of us headed out for dinner at moyo, a restuarant highly recommended for it's game meat. I figured if I was not going to get around to seeing the big 5, I could at least eat them!! Hee hee!! Raw Springbok for starters, after going downstairs to sample our wine choices, and then Mozambique Fish Curry, dinner was gorgeous. The restaurant was so cute, with African theme, traditional face painting and music. (More photos)
