Dead of the Night Durban

Durban sleeps soundly while the waves crash quietly. This is what my city looks like tonight from the top of the Blue Waters Hotel. The 18th floor holds happy memories of dancing to the Spice Girls at a friend's birthday party 10 years ago. Bronwyn, it'd be hilarious to watch those video messages we recorded for you that night! Tonight, we celebrated another friend's birthday with roast beef, yorkshire puds and cheesecake. Happy birthday Chris!

Here you can see the 2010 Soccer Stadium. It's coming along really well and people talk about it with great pride. It's an epic sight to see every morning on the way to work. I don't know the first thing about soccer but this stadium does seem to have inspired alot of hope and happiness in people.

This is the beachfront. There used to be a rather iconic flashing Coca-Cola sign on one of the buildings but sadly it's no longer there. My parents used to take my brother and I down here for Chinese takeaway at Golden Chopstix when we were kids. Good times.
