I mentioned that the other day we went to watch cricket at the Wanderers cricket ground in Illovo. In a stroke of sheer marketing brilliance, Weber set up an area where fans could buy meat for grilling (or, as they say here, 'braaing'), and use one of the dozens of Weber grills to cook their meal. South Africans are absolutely mad about their braais, so you can imagine that this area was jam-packed around lunch time.

Here's one of the neatest bucks you'll see running around the bush outside the city. I love the kudus' curved horns. Aren't they amazing? Shame this guy isn't running around the bush anymore...
