1. Needing a new left rear tyre due to a puncture. 2. Returning 2 days later and replacing the right rear tyre as well due to puncture. *ouch* 3. Healthy lunch at my desk. 4. The birds manage to finish everything in this feeder in one day. 5. Annie dozing on the floor in front of TV. 6. Sunset from the staff parkade. 7. Cup of tea. #bliss. 8. Catching the Gautrain to work. 9. Gautrain buses – Magic!
I need to start this post by saying that taking the Gautrain to work was definitely the highlight of my week!
When my good friend @HayleyM_ suggested that I meet her at the Rosebank station one morning and make our way into work, I jumped at the opportunity! Being a seasoned commuter, she gave me the “Gautrain for Dummies” overview and told me to meet her at the ticketing office just after 7:30. From the minute I arrived, the whole process was so easy, so simple and so awesome!
I was like a tourist and took millions of photos. Thanks Hayley for being so patient with me. I felt as if I was in a different country! I was totally overwhelmed by the hussle and bustle of commuters, the vibe, the excitement. I was so surprised at how many young people were on the train!
THE DROP OFF AND ENTRANCE… HASSLE-FREE
BUYING A TICKET… THE EASIEST THING IN THE WORLD TO DO
STANDING ON THE PLATFORM… FELT JUST LIKE BEING IN LONDON!
PARK STATION… WOW! WHAT A DIFFERENCE.
BUS STOP… A STONE’S THROW AWAY FROM THE OFFICE
CATCHING THE BUS…NO DELAYS, ON TIME (WE HAD TO RUN)
(to note: the Gautrain buses around my hood are empty, but they are crammed chock-a-block in town and close to the stations)
I love it! It’s high on my list of the things I love about Jozi! I cannot wait to catch it again!
