sharks at bulls

After going to Faerie Glen I biked back to Villa Africa and had a few minutes before going to meet Avery (another Stanford studentl; we lived in the same dorm this past year) at Loftus stadium for the night’s rugby match. My appreciation for organized sports is limited, but this was actually pretty fun. The game’s aren’t too long, things happen somewhat constantly. I’m not about to become a regular, but it was fun. After the game we headed to Hatfield square, big bar area near the University of Pretoria. Since the local team (The Blue Bulls) had won (over the Sharks, of Durban), there was a lot of celebrating going on. It was a fun night.

And here’s the real kicker: Avery brought two friends of his who also work at IDASA (Institute for Democracy in South Africa), one from Columbia and one form OSU. So who do I end up sitting next to? Lauri Feldman’s ex-boyfriend. He knows half the kids I know from Uni through her. Small fucking world.
