Back in Jozi



I'm back in Johannesburg. Strange that a city so foreign can feel so much like home. I'm psyched to be back! Kenya was great but it's always nice to feel at home. The picture is the Ponte Tower...an apartheid-era redoubt for the yuppies of the day, now a mad African city in a towerblock. The scuttlebutt (used to be -- see Josh's comment) that the garbage in the former central grand atrium, discarded by various squatters, campers, and n'er do wells, now reaches to the 11th floor.....

I don't know if that's true (Ponte is a particularly scary place to visit..but maybe I'll find out this trip) but I like the imagery.
