  2. As I embark at O.R Tambo International airport, holding my bags ready for clearing
    I couldn’t wait to see what’s at the other side of the airport. As I thought to myself
    Johannesburg is perfect and very comfortable and possesses all the comforts of a home with elegant furnishings and decorations. Johannesburg is the largest and most crowded city in South Africa; it is also the simple capital of Gauteng, the wealthiest province in South Africa. Johannesburg has the largest wealth of any metropolitan region in Sub-Saharan Africa. The city is one of the 40 largest metropolitan areas in the world, and Africa's only global city according to the Globalization and World Cities. This has lead to major developments in the tourism and accommodation industry.
