Currently wasting my rest day on the computer rather than doing something constructive or what not. The layover was quite good with the exception that it left at 3.55am and I had sore eyes for the entire flight there. And there was this guy who drank to much on the previous flight and who was travelling to JNB with strict instructions that he was not to consume any more alcohol. That doesn't usually happen unless someone is a threat to the safety of the aircraft or crew, so yeah we were pretty shit scared dealing with him but he was comatose the entire flight which was good.

I didn't get to take many pictures unfortunately, as it IS Johannesburg and I don't own a magnum. Spent most of the time in the hotel hoping one of the other crew would ring wanting to go see some sights. Apparently they have an African safari you can see while your there, but I was the only one who'd never flown there. So the only photos I have were taken either from my hotel room or on the bus back to the airport. My apologies if they're not particularly interesting.

Sandton City. Nice weather too, but thunderstorms at night. It showed during the flight, as we had shocking turbulence. Crew had to take their seats it was so bad. I nearly fell off my jumpseat twice I was thrashing about so much.

This is a roadside stall. They seem to be everywhere, mostly selling fruit and vegetables, but every time you stop at a traffic light there's always a guy trying to flog bottles of Coca-cola, Sprite, Fanta etc. I know of times when I could've done with a Coke while on the road, that's for sure.

And if you didn't know already, I just came back from Johannesburg...

Nicer Jo-berg housing. With the view of a highway and an ugly ditch.

Lower class housing. Surrounded by luscious trees and other greenery.

Next I'm off to Osaka, Japan, on the 3rd, so I hope I can get some better shots on that trip. And not only that, I'll be flying the Airbus 340-500, so I'll get to go into the Bulk Crew Rest Compartment and get some horizontal sleep and watch Chronicles of Narnia, Memoirs of a Geisha or The Producers on the ICE System! Can't wait. I'll certainly be packing my fluro blue pyjamas.
