A city of astonishing contrasts, a huge metropolis where opulent wealth and desperate poverty live side by side, Johannesburg is the intriguing, dynamic heart of this turbulent country. If you want to see the real South Africa-and try to understand it-Jo'burg has to be on your itinerary.
I am from Riverlea, a small suburb in Johannesburg, South Africa.
I am self employed (new business) selling handmade ethnic Bushman and arts and crafts to European buyers.
Since there is going to be a big rush for these products due to the 2010 Soccer World Cup, I had better move myself into gear.
South Africa is an interesting country with a variety of races and nationalities. It is vibrant and colourful and has a lot to offer visitors.
My favourite city is Cape Town - I studied and lived in Cape Town for 2 years, aeons ago. It is by far the most beautiful city in South Africa with the loveliest beaches and weather. I used to spend two weeks every year in Cape Town but haven't visited for quite a while.
Nightlife is out of this world, beach parties an order of the day when on holiday and touring around the Cape Peninsula for the day, will have you taking a ride to the top of Table Mountain, visiting the game park and watching the two oceans meet violently in the faroff distance is a sight to behold.
Cape wines are famous around the world and taking a trip to the wineries for wine tasting will make you feel at home.
To us it is the city that never sleeps as it seems that Capetonians only come alive in the evening!
