just on time, i have some recent pictures

One of the most fascinating facts about The Palace of the Lost City at Sun City is the size and enormity of the building project. A few of these statistics include: 600,000 truck loads of earth were moved on site, sufficient carpeting within The Palace to cover 125 tennis courts, surface area of artificial lakes and pools equal to 40 soccer pitches. During the peak of construction at The Palace of the Lost City , Sun City almost 5,000 people worked on the project. The Palace of the Lost City, Sun City was completed in only 28 months.

Now perhaps those that doubt that the stadiums will be done, just need to look no further than than Sun City!!

I posted this around March in the Johannesburg picture gallery. But will just cut and paste ('cause i am a lazy guy, LOL).

Sun City is a luxury South African casino resort, situated in the North West Province. It is located about two hours' drive from Johannesburg, close to the city of Rustenburg. The complex borders the Pilanesberg National Park.

Sun City was developed by the hotel magnate Sol Kerzner as part of his Sun International group of properties. It was officially opened on 7 December 1979; at the time it was located in the bantustan of Bophuthatswana.

Shot for the pics Kulani, lol, from the pic's thought you were chinese :crazy:
I got some pic's when I went there 12 years ago! I think they still have to be developed.
Durbsboi, you would have to burn me in a coal furnace for some time and stuff me up with a lot of junk food (ehh Nandos would be preferably, very hot full chicken), to get me to look like one of the chinese boys, LOL. :lol:

But on a serious note, DennisRodman, you are doing a great Job for SA, perhaps when you come here we should seriously petition the president to confer a national order to you for outstanding contribution, thanks dude. In fact our Dear President has a thing for internet, i bet you if i managed to draw his attention to this site, he could quote some of the remarks we make here on his weekly internet newsletter.LOL

This is a real jewel. It tends to be forgotten. Have people grown out of Sun City?
