Good times

Getting off the bus at Soccer City Stadium in Johannesburg

What I heard:
I used to love hearing the robotic female voice on the London tubes saying: "Mind the gap" when people got on and off the trains from the platforms. Yes, it is one of those strange arb things to miss, but I do. So when I heard it in South Africa too, stepping off the bus to get to the stadium, I could not help but smile from ear to ear. Although here it was a young gentleman announcing it as he held the door: "Mind the gap, please, mind the gap, please...." The Significant Other (S.O) also smiling broadly gushed: "Did you hear that?" Ah yes, he does know me so well! :)
