I'm sitting in a quiet coffee shop with my mask on getting a few stares as I'm typing this for Anto to post...
My parents have to do some shopping but the mall is too busy for me to join them! Doctor's visit went great today. No problems, weight's picking up, and fev1%/lungfunction is 90%! That's AMAZING! I didn't think it would increase from last week's 88%! Not holding my breath for next week though, no pun intended!
Looking forward to the weekend, going to visit my grandfather on Sunday! Haven't seen him since being in hospital, but he phones every day. He stays in Pretoria, which is a city next to Joburg. So it'l be my fist big outing! Haven't been able to breathe there (and in Joburg obviously) for years!
Now.. Some people asked why my mom and I are scared to go into the nature reserve alone.. Well, Joburg is one of the most dangerous cities in the world. People get killed, shot, raped, mugged etc ALL THE TIME. For 2 woman to be walking alone 'out of the public eye' would be looking for trouble. Crime is HORRIBLE here, which is the reason so many people leave the country. EVERYONE I meet here have had an encounter with crime. I'll probably never drive around alone at night. Port Elizabeth was better, and part of the problem is that Joburg is relatively close to neighboring countries like Zimbabwe and Mozambique, and lots of illegal immigrants come here, also lots of Nigerians. So it's really sad, because it's such a beatiful and diverse country. I guess you just learn to adapt! Hope that answers the question!
Hope you have a great weekend!
