Boy, did I forget about Joburg traffic! I got a huge wake-up call this morning. It took me an hour and ten minutes to get to work people...yes you read right...an hour and ten minutes. These days I am used to a ten minute drive, maybe fifteen, if I hit two red robots (yes, we call traffic lights, 'robots' here in SA), in a row.
It's funny how quickly you also forget though. Once I was at the office, and had calmed down from frustration, I realised, "okay so an hour ten minutes is okay, if my car was a bit faster I might be able to get it done in an hour"...you see I am already justifying in in my head...until tomorrow morning of course!
Anyway, being in Joburg is good, the company's new offices are really nice, I am looking forward to working there. Don't think the scale is gonna like it though, there are about a thousand awesome restaurants, in walking distance from the office. But I think the walking will balance out the eating right? You see I am doing that justifying thing again...oh well.
Off to celebrate my nephew, Kyle's birthday tonight. Happy Birthday Kyle!
