What to see and do in September 2013

The month started off with the Getaway Show in Johannesburg

Unless you want brochures for a holiday you are planning in a specific place, or looking to compare tents and camper-vans, I don’t know why one would go to a show like this.   There were a few wines to taste, limited food stalls, and no decent coffee.  All entertainment the kids have is a jumping castle, which means someone has to stay with them. To stand outside is surely not the reason one would go to a show now is it?  I wonder how many people actually have a look at the brochures they got there.  Each stall had a competition going, but I left before the prizes were handed out.  If you are looking for a half day outing and something to do, this might be an option.

The trip from Rustenburg to Johannesburg was sublime.  I was reminded of the poem Langenhoven wrote –  “Dis die blond dis die blou, dis die veld dis die lug”.
