    A soccer stadium and a seriously delicious sandwich


    (February 1st) There's still a bit of work going on at the Loftus Versfeld Stadium but it’s still a very impressive site. A stadium that's been used both for rugby and soccer, it's getting a major make-over for the World Cup.

    From there I wandered down the road to Trademarx where I was greeted at the door by one of the staff members and shown to my table. And what a table I got!

    It was at the open side of the restaurant with great views out at the back of the stadium (as you can see from the picture) and also at the stadium's training ground. I’m not sure which soccer teams will be training there but while I was eating a group of rather scantily clad rugby players were practising so any girls (or boys) looking to catch a glimpse of washboard footballer stomach, this place is a good bet!

    The food is great too! Seriously good value. I mean, I got a giant chicken and avocado sandwich on maize bread, fries and a Fanta all for well under €10. Not only was the food cheap, but it was extremely tasty too. I'd definitely recommend this place. Cool atmosphere too, with friendly staff, a mix of rock and pop music, plus cocktails and plenty of other drinks for those looking for somewhere for a tipple.

    After that it was back to Pretoria Backpackers to have a chat with the staff about what I'll be doing during the rest of my stay. Starting tomorrow with a podcast in Union Buildings.
