Cape Town's skyline is smaller than Nairobi's. Johannesburg is the best in SA but even then my favorite in Africa is still Nairobi.

Santiago, doesn't interest me.
Auckland, nice but doesn't interest me,.
Buenos Aires, never fancied it.
Perth, not even in my top 4 in Australia.....
Lima, Natal, Brasilia, really?
Natal, Brazil

Simple! Just gotta ban the vuvuzelas, and they already won! Actually, Brazil wouldn't have had to host the whole thing. Just put a 3 year moratorium on that eardrum fracker and sit down on Copacabana and relax!

I'm sorry to say though that Cape Town has nothing on Rio. They are in different leagues really...

You guys keep saying that but have you even been to Cape town? No, I highly doubt you have so just shut it. Also the vuvuzela is part of the African football atmosphere, same as the chants in England. Also what does the vuvuzela have to do with the hosting. Its a instrument sold by people not the organizers.

The South African world cup was a disaster, hopefully Brazil will do a less embarrassing job

How the hell was it a disaster? Was it just because Mexico flopped?

Ha! For us it was like AWESOME, everyone was so happy in here (until the last few days)! Anyway, I don't think it was a disaster at all, it was actually pretty well managed.
About the skylines, I'm still not quite sure, so keep posting pictures, that so far they've been great

WC in South Africa was not a disaster, the joyful atmosphere was very good (except the vuvuzela), and the stadiums were enough good.
