So here we are, our final stop after 28 weeks of travel, Johannesburg. Now it is fair to say this city doesn't have the best reputation when it comes to crime and quite a few of the citizens seem to agree. High walls, electric fences and 24 hour armed response seems common.
We've been to a few 'dangerous' cities and as long as you are sensible, you'll find they are great places to visit and Jozi is no different. Getting around the city isn't the easiest though, unless you fancy navigating the local minibus taxi system. So we decided to do our first and only red bus tour. Kat had done the maths and this was the cheapest way we could see both the apartheid museum and get a tour of Soweto.
We also used the bus to check out the SAB world of beers. A brewery tour with a difference as they gave a, sometimes strange, sometimes entertaining, history of beer with an added African element.
I'm writing this final post sat in the airport waiting for our flight home. It is a real mix of emotions, we've had such an amazing time and can't quite believe it is over. On the other hand we are keen to see family and friends and I need to catch up on Game of Thrones before someone spoils it for me!Read more
