I’m a 27 year old female American who just moved to Joburg by myself with limited funds in June of 2013.  When I first arrived, I was scared and lonely and couldn’t find any resources to help me through simple tasks like going to the doctor, opening a bank account, or catching a taxi.  I survived off of having blind faith in strangers and I met some crazy wonderful friends along the way.  This blog is for those of you who are new to this city and find that the resources available don’t cater to people who are trying to experience this city in all of its unfiltered glory.  Joburg is fucked up in all of the best and worst ways.  If you look directly at it you will go blind.
