My sister sent me these images (above and below)–making their rounds on the internets–of the new Green Point Stadium in Cape Town where one of the semi-finals of the 2010 World Cup will be played. The images were taken early this week when the stadium lights were turned on for the first time. Magnificent.

I am on course to go to South Africa for the earlier part of the World Cup (I’ll be mainly in Cape Town since I am traveling with my 4 year old daughter), and though I don’t have any tickets, I hope I get lucky and, especially, get to see a game–even if it was between two unglamorous sides–at the Green Point Stadium. For now, enjoy the images.
