PostHeaderIcon The World Cup 2010 ride to Rustenburg for Ghana vs Australia

We left mid morning for the two hour drive (or so) to Rustenburg for the Ghana versus Australia for our second game in World Cup 2010.  We chose to take the back roads to head up and the interstate to come back after.  The countryside was beautiful as we drove through small town after small town.

Part of the way there we started seeing large fires set all over the place. At a distance it looked like forest fires or preventive burning. But, as we got closer to some, we could see them scorching the fields after harvest to prepare the soil again.

Crop burning

We reached the end of the road as we started to see the signs for the stadium and parking.

Almost to Rustenburg

More on the game itself in another post.
