^ I agree. Pretoria is... well... stuck in the past, in terms of style and general lifestyle. However, its residents are really happy (on average, of course) and it seems that the city has adapted to be a place for both black and white and every-colour-in-between South Africans.

btw, AAS' photos of Pretoria can be found here:

Guys, the reason why i considered to start a new thread about Pretoria its because of the developments taking place there. Pretoria has a lot to offer, there lots of development next to Menyln shopping amll and the city property is being renovated. The problem that I have encountered is that i can't find any information on the net regarding this. I like the new DTI building in Esselen street.
