#12: Find the city skyline.
I saw this photograph on Gregor Rohrig’s blog and feel vaguely disturbed by it. I love the image but it’s not of the city I know and love. The skyline I associate Joburg with is the one that has the Hillbrow tower rising above the inner city. This image is of Sandton, and while it is vying to be the new CBD, it hasn’t yet won me over. Joburg has outstretched its limits and like Los Angeles has become a sprawling metropolis with many centres. Perfect for the postmodernist but alarming for the romantic.
