Johannesburg - The growing city

After all the debacle in the 1990s whereby buildings started to deteriorate and the businesses abandoning the CBD and moving towards the north because of crime and grime, this city have now embarked on projects to find its feet. This city wants to be recognised as a World Class African city. There's much to be done but on the other side more has been done in the past couple of years, I hope to be alive in 2010 so that I can show you all what this city will be looking like by then.

The pics I will post here will show the street life, buildings, transport etc. I hope you gonna enjoy them. I will also include pics of the northern surburbs and so forth.
