Joburg has become my part time lover – so exciting to hang out with, but no strings attached.  I blogged about my previous visits here and here, but I must say that this time Jozi and I have taken our relationship to the next level.  Meet  my travel companions – my pal Claire on the left, a native Joburger who’s visiting from Scotland and my sister on the right, 6 months pregnant. They are outside Superella – a place which is totally making Voortrekker sexy (and I’m talking about the clothes which I didn’t photograph).

Next stop an inner city walking tour with Main Street Walks . If you want to experience the true grit and exhilaration of “downtown Joburg” you will love this tour. It starts in the Maboneng district and shows the many faces of inner city gentrification, the good, the bad and the Witch Doctors. Below is our guide Bongani.
