I didn’t know much. On my way back to Asia from Namibia, I decided to make one-day layover in Johannesburg, South Africa. I had to change the flights in Johannesburg anyway, I wanted to make the best out of the trip. Also, I didn’t want to miss the chance to see another city/ country in Africa. When I finally made my mind, surprisingly, I’ve heard back a lot of worries. The issue was: safety. Africa is not known for the safe environment, I know that. But Johannesburg especially, is considered not a safe place to visit. A simple comparison; I’ve met many travelers who traveled/ loved Cape Town, but haven’t heard great things about Joburg on the other hand. There can be many reasons behind, but all I can say is that Johannesburg is just not as popular as Cape Town. I was nervous because I’m awkward in a not-safe environment. I over protect my stuff, choose wrong things to lock up, and just don’t quite know what to do with myself. And, I always slip and lost something at the end. But with the help of my friend Clare, I’ve decided to experience the city myself.
