South Africa abuzz as World Cup draws near

There is a buzz in the streets of Johannesburg, Cape Town and Durban. There is a buzz in the country. With less than eight days to kick-off South Africa is ready.
Everywhere you go there are flags. Flags fly from car windows, from offices, shopping-centres and homes. Almost everyone has a ticket for at least one of the games. 
The atmosphere is festive and alive. The local team show signs of practice and commitment that could lead anywhere. The world is watching! 
Almost every car sports a flag. Most are for the local team, but others are for Portugal, Italy, England ... you name it!

The flags of the competing nations adorn South Africa's corporate environment. Almost every office has become part of the celebration - even before it has begun!
