Jo’burg is a strange place. We’ve been to some pretty dangerous destinations, but Jo’burg was odd in that every residence had huge walls and barbed wire. Private security guards roamed the streets with machine guns, and we were told by the hotel what outdoor walk would be safe for us: the five minute walk from the hotel to the nearby mall. Jo’burg had a compound feel to it that we did not like.

Thanks for reading this trip report! Because I am posting the numerous parts of this report while I'm travelling, they will be published over the course of the next couple weeks. Enjoy!
The next couple weeks are quite busy for me. This weekend I’m visiting the family in Ottawa, where I will be getting a fancy-pants suit for my real world life. After that, I’m off to Hong Kong and South Africa on Cathay Pacific First Class. I will be writing the trip report throughout the course of the next couple weeks, including an instalment on how I booked it coming out soon. However, considering my real-world business, my posting will go down, and considerably down while I’m on safari etc from Jul 16-Jul 30. Nonetheless, I will continue to post during this busy time, just with less frequency. As always, I only post original content, which takes awhile to think about and write.
