En route back to Canada I spend a Sunday in Johannesburg and decided to stay in Sandton rather than Rosebank mainly because Sandton is on a direct Gautrain line from O.R. Tambo airport – a journey that takes about 15 min and costs R135. The Gautrain station in Sandton is the curvy white roofed building in the foreground of the imbedded photo, with the old shopping centre in the background. The whole shopping area around Mandala Square is really “high end” and has been considerably expanded since I last visited over 10 years ago and reminded me a little of Macau with the large fake Italian casinos etc.GSB_South Africa-1780-20150517_Johannesburg
