It’s Saturday the 10th of December 2005. I’m in Aspen, Colorado, The United States of America…DUH! So I’m working again today, hoping to get paid at some stage… cash slowly but surely dwindling. These people walk into the shops, very well presented…look like typical rich Aspinites. But the thing is, is that they’re speaking Afrikaans. So i’m like hell yeah, South Africans. definately the more wealthier type though. I ask the one woman where they’re from and she says Cape town, so blah blah blah they’re here to ski. Shame times are hard. But then her friend walks in and I’m like hang on… who is this lady, very familiar. Definately some sort of celeb back home. Just couldn’t quite figure it out… so boo hoo hoo.
But then I go on my lunch break… at half3, headon over to the supermarket and there in DAMN Aspen stands Francois Pienaar, WIFE (click click) and family. I suppose after his hard work, but unlucky failure in trying to get the 2011 rugby world cup back in SA, he deserves a good old break. But DAMN in Aspen, like one of the most expensive little towns in the entire States. I’ll try stalk him and take photos k.
There is a concert tonight, in celebration of the Woman’s World Cup… dunno who the band is but it’s free, and that’s what matters. JOKES. But it should be fun. Hope all is good in the hood… be in touch peops, good to hear from folks back home. Later
