Posters, posters, posters and loads of prestik. Up on walls, fences, pillars, trees, lamp posts, Apollos, in spaza shops, schools, barber shops, shopping centres and even a North West funeral parlour (it looked like a Spaza Shop from afar...). This page is dedicated to Toby, our designer fantastique, and his fabulous team, Quinton and Meghan. Bisous and thanks, the A Team.

Our favourite Milie Man, who makes wicked milies and kebabs next to the soccer field en route to the Luthuli Museum. A little known fact about ZA's first Nobel Peace Price winner: he loved soccer!
Overlooking the rolling hills of the Transkei and Madiba's home in Qunu is the Nelson Mandela Youth and Heritage Centre, a Vodacom tower (great for our blog), a fair amount of cows and goats, villages that flicker like milky lane at night and.... a soccer field!
We were told that this establishment had closed down. Until Gaby called to say how much she liked the poster on her guest sign board...
