I love all the re-imagining and re-development happening in Jozi.

Braamfontein is now one of my favourite places… The Fashion District is colourful chaos… and, of course, The Maboneng Precinct is full of artists, musicians and interesting-crazy people.  Arts on Main is the Sunday market which I love to occasionally attend (especially when I’m in the mood to break-out-of-the-‘burbs!).

I went with my sister Soo… and her new man (Owen)… and we met some friends from Rumble-in-the-Pub (debate group).  Here’s some pics…

The blurry thing in the foreground was actually a very divine pancake stuffed with sliced banana and big globs of Nutella! Yummm!


A hall of yummies! Long tables where people can eat (and, in my case, draw AND eat)… drink coffee and chat. Lots of fresh food, baked goods and coffee. And brilliant people-watching too…


The day ended off with a divine cup of Ethiopian coffee… and popcorn. Anyone know why the Ethiopians serve popcorn with their coffee? Or was it just a cheap snack?
