SOUTH AFRICA: FLOWERS AND PALM TREES IN BEDFORDVIEW

Processed with VSCO with hb1 preset

Bedfordview – or as I like to call it “little LA”.

There are palm trees everywhere, nice streets, cute cafés, flowers – soooo many beautiful flowers. Over all Bedfordview is a great, secure and pretty area in Joburg. We went up a signal hill this Sunday. We drive past this hill every morning on our way to work and wondered (almost every day!) if we could go up there to take pictures or if it´s not safe enough. Because – and I have to be honest about it – that’s the dark part of this country, you always have to check everything twice before going somewhere. Especially if you’re a foreigner you simply don’t know the streets and the areas – you don’t have to be scared to get robbed in every other street but you simply need to be aware of those things. But, we sometimes tend to be too scared and not brave enough to explore this city which has amazing places.

So this Sunday we said “f*** it – let’s go up that signal hill”.

We met lovely people up there, had a nice chat, took pictures of flowers and palm trees and notorious Joburg in the far.
