These are the fallen leaves of cool looking Jacaranda tree. Although the capital Pretoria is famous with this tree, it’s actually originated from South America. There is even a famous local radio station in Gauteng, Jacaranda FM. This station plays boring mid-age music, where Highfeld Stereo is much better.
Another point to note, further Jacaranda plantation is stopped by municipality, due high water need of this tree. It’s roots are also damaging pavements and roads while growing. Still Jacaranda’s will not be a reason for the end of the human kind. I promise.
Back like blazing wildfire
This is the mark on a waste bin at morninghill in johannesburg. Google Maps tells the place is germiston, where GPS devices tell it’s bedfordview. This is the proof for Google being right on their claim. Or this may be an indication for an underground organization that germistoneers want to enlarge their borders. May be later ask for freedom inside the state. We will see.
Band playing at jozifest. I don’t know who they are but people seem enjoying it. Jozifest 2012 happened on 3-4 february at newtown. Crowd was nice, nothing gone nasty. They closed 3 indoor places with the street (dj stage was under the bridge, secured of possible rain) drinks were the most expensive i have seen in joburg though.
This dog lives in johannesburg. I am not sure to what extend would you interested in this dog. He is a bit clever, doesn’t bark much, friendly, but can be scary if the subject is food. There are no big stories about this dog, he didn’t save any lifes or didn’t catch a thief. What else i can say ? Sorry for your time. Wooof !
Smallest crocodile seen at south africa, looking for his mother though. Still consumes 2 pounds of meat per day.
Goldfish playing live at preatoria, the capital of SA. Messi is a big fan of them. Messi is good, Goldfish is even better !
Clouds are always fabulous, awesome, mind-blowing in jhb, may be related to altitude, or flat flat terrain
When it comes to street art, johannesburg has some to offer. Here you see ‘lady catching the greenish sun’ that Pablo Picasso personally draw by the kind request of Nelson Mandela to a wall in Newtown. Newtown is the refurbished part of johannesburg CBD with some bars and restaurants -they have a better joburg feeling then the other ‘stylish’ ones - and with better security.
