Driving through the streets of Johannesburg - Johannesburg, or E'Goli (city of gold) is the third largest city in Africa (after Cairo and Alexandria). Johannesburg is the financial and instustrial metropolis of South Africa. Unfortunately, the city centre, no longer beautiful but run down and neglected. Very few people go there anymore, prefering to shop in the suburbs or Sandton which is the new financial hub!
Turning into Rissik Street - home of the famous Rissik Street Post Office which is a national Monument, one of our oldest buildings
The Old Library - opposite the Post Office on Rissik Street - derelict, old and uncared for!
Driving out of Rosettenville towards town - I wouldn't have my hair done here!
Typical Taxi - see how overloaded it is?
Old Buildings - broken windows!
Now, we don't put in our own petrol (gas) in South Africa, we have petrol attendants who do it for us! This friendly young man put petrol in Philip's car in the heart of the city centre! He was only too happy to have his photograph taken! He thought we were tourists!
All in all an interesting afternoon!
