Centre of the flag

That's the sun setting in my car's side mirror, the heart of a flag. Every second - probably even more than that though - side mirror is wrapped in national flags of the countries playing in the soccer world cup.
I'm no sports fan, even so I'm being swept away by the soccer tornado that is wreaking good natured havoc across Johannesburg where I am visiting for business.
Just past are many years of doom sayers speaking out against SA successfully hosting the world cup, also - locally - the construction of the first stages of Gauteng province's high speed mass transit train...basically Africa's first underground.
Both are here, in all their glory.
