One of the prize winners of the World Cup ticket competition held on this blog has sent us some photographs of his trip.
Judging by his grin he had a great time.
IT professional Steve Winterburn won a ticket to the Netherlands versus Uruguay semi-final in Cape Town. The tickets were donated by indian IT supplier Mahindra Satyam, which built and supported the software that ran the event in South Africa.
Having spent a lot of time in Africa myself I imagine the football was not the main attraction.
"The football was the reason I went, but it will be Africa itself which will be my over-riding memory," Steve told me.
He said: "Back at work this morning after my South Africa trip - I had a fantastic time, it's a fantastic country and the World Cup was a great success and a brilliant atmosphere, and thank-you again for the chance to win the ticket in the first place."
Thanks Steve.If any of the othe prize winners have any pictures please emalme and tell me how your trip was. You can also post comments on this blog post.
