The City I Live In – Pretoria

Family

I have realised that there are so many things in life that we all take for granted. This got me thinking about what I take for granted.

One of those things is the city I live in. Pretoria. It’s a city that not many people would think of as beautiful, but if you are in the rite place at the rite time of year it happens to be absolutely stunning.

Here are some photo’s of this lovely city in South Africa.

I have to admit that during the October/November months being in Pretoria is like being in a fantasy world. Pretoria seems to resemble some fairy city out of a story book. It’s an amazing time of year to visit the city as there are almost more purple trees than green ones.

    It looks a lot more beautiful than the wintry, icy abyss I’m living in right now (Pittsburgh, PA). At least we have the Steelers and we’re going to the Super Bowl, I guess. But I may need to take a trip to South Africa in the near future!

    Yeah, it is great. We don’t get snow at all though (well almost never). I wouldn’t mind snow at the moment. It’s so hot over here. 🙂
