A Travellerspoint blog

Day 115, Pretoria - Johannesburg

View Africa 1998-99 on shaneo15's travel map.

It was a lazy morning at Anton's. After a big breakfast and some kitchen chores, I did some emailing and packing up. Anton shouted pizza for lunch before driving down a motorway lined with administrative offices to Johannesburg. Checked in to Rockey Street hostel then headed to dingy part of town to mighty Ellis Park. Watched a Five Nation win for Poms then soaked up atmosphere in the impressive arena. It was an exciting match until Otago sneaked a late win thanks to Culhane. Locals were very parochial, almost intimidating. Said bye to Anton and Marty, and Cooch and I went for drinks near hostel. Only white boys in first a café, then jazz bar, night club.
