What great organization, 5 star treatment from the moment that I arrived ’till the moment that I left.
I was asked earlier what whisky was being served, well I don’t drink the stuff but the whisky on offer in our suite was something called ‘J & B Jet’
Fortunately for me, when I mentioned my dilemma to one of the staff a bottle of brandy magically appeared, that’s more my style, a couple of beers (Bud, it’s awful but I forced a couple down (didn’t want to offend my hosts 😉 )) followed by a few brandy and cokes during the match. I hear some of you laughing at the stereotype (beer and brandy& coke), well, leopards don’t change their spots even in FIFA suites!
I had a great time, I’ve had a great month of it actually, South Africa returns to normal tomorrow, no hangover, no regrets and loads of happy memories, FIFA’s advertising blurb is absolutely spot on, ‘Once in a lifetime.’
Their other slogan was ‘make sure you can say I WAS THERE’, I did and I wasn’t disappointed.
