Have arrived in Rustenburg for the Ghana game. Interesting journey including a sign that reads: "Hijack Zone next 4km." Others have hotlines in case you hit a croc. The area around the stadium is a red wasteland and there is one lane back to Joburg. The ground is small and intimate but surrounded by a running track. Shold make for a good atmosphere tomorrow night.
