Last night was the Best of Joburg Awards. It was held at Randlords in Braamfontein. The 360 degree view of Johannesburg at night was magnificent. We watched the lightning, the flashing lights and just marvelled at the city, whilst sipping on champagne and eating macaroons and turkish delight.
I wish I had brought my SLR camera with… These were taken on my Blackberry.
