I am off to the city of Johannesburg to wait for my husband of thirty-seven years, whose flight is due, at 16h15 South African time today.
Above and below are photos of some of the traffic conditions I can expect to encounter in the city on Monday. This may not seem too serious for city dwellers who commute to and from work on a daily basis. But for me, a bit of a country bumpkin, it can be quite daunting. However, I know Johannesburg very well and know the way to the airport like the back of my hand -lol! I'm not at all nervous to drive in traffic as the Lord and His many angels will protect me as I travel. I have a GPS (at my husbands insistance - as I said, I know the route well!) and will leave home early on Monday morning. I would rather spend a couple of hours sitting in the airport arrivals lounge (ugh!) than be late because there'd been a traffic jam/bottleneck at the last minute. I always have my knitting in my bag so I will keep busy while I wait for the plane. Oh, and I love people-watching and I'll have my camera with me...The traffic in Johannesburg can be quite daunting to someone from the country! I'm quite confident in traffic and know the route quite well.
My husband should arrive today at 16h15, South African time\
We will travel back to our home in the Free State on Monday night.
