Here's the new Greenpoint Soccer Stadium, to seat 68,000, birdseye view - maybe it needs a little work, still...

Hi Rory - thanks for your comments!! How did I take this? See the link: Revolving in a very tight turn upstairs!!. I told the (very yummy) pilot that I have a special friend who would appreciate this sight (you).

Hoopoe Bird: Wonderful!! Aren't they beautiful birds with that huge crest on their heads? They are quite large too and such a lovely cinnamon colour. Looking forward to seeing your photo.

Enjoy the rest of your trip and have lots of fun!!

Cheers, Hazel

Wow! How many people will it contain?

It should seat 68,000 for the 2010 World Cup, giames - but this number of seats will be reduced after the World Cup.

Thank you both very much for your visit to our Stadium. One of these days it will be filled with Soccer Fans and lots of NOISE!!!

I am thrilled that you have added me to your list of Favourites, Cees - very kind of you. Thank you so much.

Warmest wishes,
