I was in Jo’burg on business yesterday, it was fun. I got to catch the Gautrain from the airport and back! Boy was I impressed. It was clean, fast and efficient. It was worth flying up there just to catch the train.
My only problem…. the escalators at the Sandton station! Holy cow they have dug a deep hole in the ground. The platform of the station is a long way from the surface and while catching the esculators up you get quite a good idea of how deep. You can see all the way down. Not good when you have a slight fear of heights. I was beginning to get rather stressed near the top. On the way back I thought I would be smart and catch the lift…. That was fine until we started to descend and I realised the doors were glass…. Yikes, I had my eyes shut the whole way down.
Please excuse quality of these photos. I took them from my phone.
