Johannesburg is the largest and most populous city in South Africa. The population of the metropolitan area is currently estimated at about 9 million inhabitants. It is the third most populous city in Africa after Cairo and Lagos. Taking these data into account, when you walk down streets like this one, you can not stop thinking if you are in the right place or have taken the wrong way. It is a city that has such a dark past, marked by decades of labor exploitation, political and economic segregation, racism, violence, repression, international isolation and excessive crime, but that became in less than 20 years a prosperous, friendly, pleasant, productive and integrated city in the world economy. It is a city that surprises you because being in Africa you find yourself with a first world infrastructure, it surprises you because little by little it has ceased to be one of the most violent places on the planet to become a global city, because areas that only 6 years ago were completely uninhabitable today flourish with bars, cafes, businesses, restaurants and shopping centers.
I still don't have a proper computer to edit photos on right now, so that's why I've barely been posting anything, but I managed to edit some photos from a ski trip a couple of weeks ago, so I know May is almost here, but I love winter and I don't want it to go away, so expect some snow stuff in the coming days. 😂❄️
