I really had no intent of finding these photos today but felt they were worth passing on to everyone. Its some construction updates to some of the World Cup Stadiums in South Africa. Looks like they are well on their way to play host to the 2010 World Cup.

I won’t post too many but I will provide what it looks like now and what it is expected to look like in the end. I think early on my favorite might be the Moses Mabhida Stadium in Durban. Nothing like attending a game and then being able to go to the beach shortly after. Beautiful views from there I believe.

Most of these stadiums look pretty nice I must say. Any of you heading to Africa for the World Cup in a couple years?

    If the canucks make it, I'm in SA for sure.

    Sure, the stadiums are looking good, but what about the fact that the chief of the Local Organizing Committee is South Africa just resigned? <a href="http://www.sowetan.co.za/News/Article.aspx?id=832240&quot; target="_blank"><a href="http://www.sowetan.co.za/News/Article.aspx?id=832…</a>" target="_blank">http://www.sowetan.co.za/News/Article.aspx?id=832…</a></a> <br />
    That's the real story today, and with setbacks like that there is still a long way to go before 2010 in South Africa actually happens.

    South Africa cut its spending on AID prevention and healthcare system development to help fund these stadiums. They look great but aren't the priorities a bit backwards here?
