Brilliant Night View of #JoburgCity

Last night I attended an art exhibition called the Postcard Revival on the top floor of the Barbican Building, one of the most iconic buildings in downtown Joburg. I have no time to tell you anything about the exhibition, or the glorious building in which it took place.  But I’m making time to show you one photo that I took from the Barbican’s 10th-floor balcony.

Ah, Joburg City. I heart you. (This is the Gauteng Legislature building.) 

I’m off to the Joburg City Tourism Association’s weekend in the city. Don’t forget to follow us on Facebook and Twitter. We’ve created a special hashtag for the weekend, #JoburgCity, which you can follow on Twitter and Instagram. Maybe I’ll even squeeze in a blog post at some point over the weekend. (Although likely not because the schedule is jam-packed.)

I’m very excited, and also very late. Bye.

    Words fail me. That is probably the best photo ever. Phenomenal …….

    Wish we had known–is the exhibition still on or was it a one night thing? (Btw, the fourth building from left, behind the Gauteng Legislature dome, is our building!)

      Hey Shawn, I’m sorry you didn’t know about it! I think it was just a one-night thing, but you can check for updates on their FB page:

      I need to come check out your place! I’m spending a lot of time in that neighborhood now 🙂
