I have been up in Jozi this week, working, and it has been exciting and fun. It helps that I have a hired car to travel the distances, since I have been staying at Boet and gorgeous sister-in-law and traveling to Pretoria every day for work. It feels like lots of the day is spent behind the wheel.
I am lucky that Boet loves Jozi the way he does. On freezing, sleety Monday night he took me to his fave spot in Fordsburg for a curry. he knows where to get the best coffee at 7am in the morning. He buys the best Napoletana sauce from an old Italian man. Â Yesterday, after work we met at The Radium for a beer before I went to see Conrad Koch’s new show, My Pro Doll and Neuro Friends at Sandton’s Old Mutual Theatre on The Square. I love the Jozi he is immersed in.
My Garmap has been a life saver, even though I can’t seem to be smooth and easy with it. I battle between off and on, old directions and new, and general cellphone stupidity. I dropped the actual unit last night and I had to wait for voice directions from under the seat.
Jozi is always also a combination of work, friends and family. This is seriously intense. And tomorrow Big Friendly comes up for the weekend. Yay, a lot. I have missed him terribly.
