This must be the most creative and 'on the ground' expression of the soccer world cup spirit...beautiful sand castles! Soccer on the beach seems far more appealing to me than the throngs and crowds in stadiums..
The opening matches are happening today. The whole country is in party mode. People have been blowing vuvuzelas since early dawn. Workmen driving trucks and many others are all wearing giant sized fun spectacles and makarapas. Great support for the South African team Bafana Bafana...it's a little challenging to try to find a quiet meditative spot in all this action, so we are closing the studio at lunchtime today and joining in the fun...no making of ceramics today!
