World Cup 2010 Opening Ceremony

After pulling an all-nighter from the previous night, I only got home from work around 9pm, just in time to catch the FIFA 2010 World Cup Opening Ceremony. Seeing South Africa on Korean TV, knowing that the entire world was watching my country.

President Jacob Zuma delivered a message of apology from former president, Nelson Mandela who couldn't attend the event because of the tragedy that hit his family the previous night. His great-granddaughter, Zenani Mandela died in a car accident on her way home from the Kick Off Concert the previous night.

The first match was South Africa vs Mexico (1-1)
