I’d like this place better if it wasn’t so cold, if it wasn’t so overcrowded and if taxi drivers weren’t so rude.
They say every young professional should work in Joburg, atleast at the start of their career, I never asked why but for me, this is not how I imagined my first year as a qualified Journalist.
I’m not complaining much though because I consider myself lucky. I work for one of the biggest daily newspapers in the country and I can confidently say that I’m doing pretty well.
It’s the early morning trips from Berea to Auckland Park and the hectic trips back that I’m not sure about. Two taxi rides in the morning to Bree Taxi Rank where I have to endure long queues and deafening car hooters. Infact, you aren’t a real taxi commuter if you’ve never witnessed a ‘taxi fight’ between a driver and a passenger, while inside the taxi.
