Johannesburg is my home. I know where to get the best coffee, the best mechanic for a Aircooled VW and where to find a 50s dress with flamingos on it.
However, I’ve never seen the city from the point of view of a visitor.
I suppose, much like New Yorkers who have never been to the Statue of Liberty. There are things that you know of, but don’t actually see as part of your everyday reality.
Looking for something to do we jumped on the Joburg Sightseeing bus tour and set off from Rosebank for a tour of Egoli. And, I realized that tourists probably know more about the history of the place than most of its residents!
Johannesburg is well known for its vibrant street art, and traveling around by bus gave me a great opportunity to snap away as we rode by. If you want a more tailored street art experience contact Past Experiences (http://pastexperiences.co.za)
People, places, faces
As a city of so many people, so many cultures and such a radical divide between haves and have-nots, the tour offers quite a juxtaposition between the two extremes.
