Pieter-Dirk Uys: Why I like Joburg hugely

I Am Joburg, 6 April 2018


1. It’s not Pretoria

2. I can always enjoy Johannesburg knowing I can go back to Cape Town.

3. People answer your calls within minutes; Cape Town take months.

4. It is a truly African City with unapologetic Eurocentric accessories.

5. It has more trees than many cities in the world.

6. I love the sunrise during summer.

7. The winter in Joburg is always a treat.

8. There are no thunderstorms that can compare with the skiet, skop and donner above Egoli.

9. I love exploring the inner city and seeing renovations happening thanks to the imagination of young entrepreneurs.

10. Joburg is sometimes run like a small village and even gets away with it!
