JUST A BOY IN CITY OF JOBURG

Chapter 1

SIDE OF MABONENEG PRECINCT.

Towards the end of the east of the Johannesburg CBD there is a beautiful city development called the MABONENG Precinct. I’ve been twice and I liked it but there were a couple of things that I did not understand that I honestly didn’t like.

I went today to meet with a representative from Propertuity which is the development company behind the MABONENG Precinct. I went there to learn a bit about the differences between the Chinese retail and how to do business when compared to other retail spaces. Someone who deals with sales who was more than willing to help me and ended up showing me around the residential property that is currently for sale in the precinct.

I don’t want to go into the differences much as I do not know at this point what I will include in my final feature and I mean I must create suspense otherwise what’s the point right?

Someone told me that the precinct currently has 12 finished buildings but they currently own 40 buildings in the area which they plan to have completed in the next five years. This brings me to what I did not like about MABONENG initially.

I thought: “What on earth is the point of having this small are of beauty when the rest of the surrounding areas are pretty much run down?” Well I guess my question was answered today.

MABONENG is still a developing project and the main objective is to have a space where people can live, work and invest. I asked one of the tourist said at the end of the day the aim is to become a lot like New York City where people actually prefer to live in the city rather than in suburbia.

Oh how I would LOVE that. I believe the city is gorgeous and as we walked around today I noticed more and more just how stunning our city is. (Oh My Gosh I just referred to Johannesburg as my city. MIDRAND please do not kill me. I still love you.)

After walking around the residential property I grabbed some lunch on my lonesome then went on the free public art tour in the area. Now understand that I hate being alone. Not all the time but most of the time. I’m one of those people who would never dine alone or go to the movies alone, it just freaks me out.

I realised at the beginning of this project however that I would have to learn how to get out of my comfort zone and learn how to immerse myself in something alone and learn some valuable lessons. The street art tour was amazing and I will be posting some of the pictures later there are just so many.

harry142018: This story was gripping and very professionally written. With lots of twists and slight of hand tricks, the author deceives the reader until finally showing their cards at the end. With several subplots all intertwining to create the main plot, this really is an interesting and engaging read.

Rachel Mc Donald: This was an awesome book a real page turner couldn't put it down . The characters all had a good back story . I love these kind of books and would read it if you decided to write a follow up book . Excellent work

Felisa Yoder Osburn: I really enjoyed the story. Civil War stories are some of my favorites and the intertwining of the past with current times was wonderful. I look forward to reading the next stories.

taosgw74: If this is the authors first attempt at writing, I'm floored. I was engrossed in the plot from the get go.

Samantha Speed: There were several punctuation, grammar, and missing word problems but it did not detract from the story. This story was very well done, enjoyable, and had an interesting enough plot. It took a while to finish. This story is not complete. I love it, but I want to see another book or have more cha...

Tony Lee: Read this during my 7-hour flight. You've done a great job describing each situation, but I believe there is room for improvement. Also, the ending was a bit abrupt and I think the last part where Terry Hunter was brought in again (slight spoiler) wasn't really necessary.. But overall the story k...
