I needed a working space to collaborate with M, my colleague and Rosebank was the first choice. For many reasons:
Sandton is just gridlocked
Rosebank is closer to me
There’s great coffee in Rosebank at Motherland Coffee – with great chill vibes playing in the background – my ideal workspace
It’s trendy and cosmopolitan
There are amazing clothes shops which are a treat to windowshop
It’s across the road from the Gautrain station, convenient for M who came from Cape Town to support me at an important client meeting
I found a water feature – it was new to me – and it’s probably been there for ages. I only noticed it today. In any event, below are some of the pics I took (notice the mandatory coffee and muffin pic…?)
…when all is said and done I revel in the peace and solitude the setting of the sun brings…and immerse myself in the colours of nature’s palette.There is nothing more beautiful to me than a Johannesburg sunset.
Have I told you yet that our Christmasses are green?
We don’t have white Christmasses here, we have green ones. Green hills, green grass, green heat. The sky is blue. The pool is blue. It’s summer here. Maybe in the early morning when soft mist rolls in high lying areas there is a bit of white. It is soon replaced by green though.
