    Woodstock Introduction
    Corn Stars: Woodstock to Kenilworth on the Train, Hey Boet

    Haazit Chana. Name's Dwane Engelbrecht. I'm 30 and a half. I'm originally from Joburg. I say originally cos I've been here in Cape Town 6 months now and I feel like I've become a local. Really love it. Lekker beaches, lekker chicks. I feel I really fit in now, doing things the Cape Town way. I also no longer wear button-up shirts when I go dancing. I also no longer invite my tjoms for a dop in Parow. They don't seem to come. I picked up some slang, hay may bru. Aweh may bru. My bru from another moer.

    Anyways, I came down for business. I never studied business, hey. I never had any money, so it didn't make much business sense. Besides what's the first thing they teach you in business? See a need, fill a need. So I already know that. I know business. So if there's no need for me to study, then why must I fill the need for a piece of paper saying?

    So I'm working for my dad now, my old ballie. We make a good family business team. He tells me what to do and ... I do it. Immediately.

    If I bugger it up he donders me, anyways, apparently we're going on a train ride together. You should be standing between platforms 1 and 2. In front of you is a big red building saying I and J. Ek en jy. This VoiceMap thing is gonna play automatically at the right spots so you can put your phone away. Try get a seat on the left side, or stand by the left door. The windows are as blurry as Saturday morning babalas eyes so open one if you get a seat. OK lekker, so when the train gets here, just jump on and I'll see you down the line hey. You geddit? Down the line.
