There has been a long silence on my blog as I was out of action for a couple of weeks in September. So energy levels coming back and lots to catch up on. The rains have come, the days are crisp and clear with new spring shoots washed and sparkling, and the dry and burnt dustbowl of nearby Delta Park has transformed into a softer more inviting green parkland. With the Spring Art Tour this weekend the Joburg art scene is buzzing. Part of the first stage of the REA VAYA (Bus Rapid Transport system) is up and running (took a ride myself); it’s 247 days to World Cup Soccer and the press is buzzing with revelations being made in the current trials of various public officials. There is lot’s on the go.
