Once again thousands of South Africans will be glued to their television sets on Saturday, 15 May. The question, will we host the Soccer World Cup 2010? South Africa's bid to host the World Cup scored top marks from FIFA's inspection committee. South Africa is among five African countries competing to win the right to host in 2010, and most commentators have put South Africa or Morocco as the hottest favorites.
BUT as we know, it is not over until the last ball was bowled or shall I say, until the last ball was kicked!
I wonder what will happen with the real estate industry should South Africa get to host the World Cup.

|>> Focus on the Plettenberg Bay, Garden Route, Western Cape, South Africa|
The Garden Route has a Mediterranean Maritime climate, with moderately
hot summers, and mild to chilly winters. It is one of the richest rainfall
