Quintessential Photo of Azania

If you have lived in Azania as long as I did (39 years before I left) and roved around the CBD of Johannesburg, or any East Rand town, Durban, Cape Town, and just about every other large city, you will have encountered a scene very much the same as that depicted in this photo.

Wherever you go, it is truly surreal; a tectonic clash between the 1st and 3rd worlds. A pidginised mix of cultures. The creeping rot of Africa meets Western civilisation.
