Art on Main ... Jo'burg on foot
I don't do exploring very well, I like to know where I'm off and what I can expect to find.
but this morning I got into the car to be taken to a surprise venue.
We headed south on the N1 towards jo'burg. Then into jo'burg, through Hilbrow and I started to panic.....i really didn't want to be there, past Ellis Park, which doesn't feel as safe as when I was there last year to watch the football as the security was obvious. Down a few side streets, and parked on the side of the road to discover Art on Main.
Lots of little cafes, bars and street vendors, a fashion show and salsa dancing on the rooftops.
Very friendly people, mind you the rasta who stopped us for a chat was from Hampshire.
So we had a little walk, took some photos, ate a fab breakfast, bumped into a couple we knew and shared a coffee.
But that was it
