So, firstly, apologies for the blog absence of late. Please be assured that I am still living, it was just a combination of illness and laziness. But I’m back, and having a wee moment of nostalgia for Jo’burg life.
The cause? A mixture of an email to lovely Fiona and questions about returning from ‘Ex Pat’ life, as part of her current blog series; a coffee-shop-conversation with a lovely fresher who has recently returned from a few months in The Gambia; and a chance view of this beautiful short about the Ponte Tower.
I spent months living and working in a city with a skyline dominated by a number of striking towers, and I wish I had known how awesomely cool Ponte was. I’m sure I would have been too scared to visit, but maybe one of my braver friends would have taken me along for a look.
Do watch the film, it’s very beautiful, and not very long:
In summary: pretty city.
