The nice thing about sport, is that it reminds u of stuff.
Its also a way of keeping track of time .. I cant believe England last toured S.Africa in 2010/11 .. gee time flies. They are due to tour again, at the end of the yr.
I have fond memories of the games, and the Barmy Amy, singing many songs.
One song, which was used to wind-up the locals, was a theme of 10 green bottles, based upon the weakness of the local currency - the Rand.
In 2010, the song started at ..
We get 1 Rand to the pound, we get 1 rand to the pound, etc etc
and seemingly, 15 minutes later, they finished on
We get 12 rand to the pound , We get 12 rand to the pound, We get 12 rand to the pound, We get 12 rand to the pound !!
with a special finish of :
Its so cheap, its unbelievable !!
well, 5 yrs on .. things have changed a bit.
U now get 21 Rand to the £ .. the song will take 35 minutes ..
S.Africa has become ridiculously cheap, for foreigners .. a 5 star hotel can cost £110, a bottle of beer - well its cheap.
I think some holiday makers, will have some v sore heads.
