top of one of the lower hills, there is the place of the atom bomb.
All the technology
that it took for this country to build their own weapons have been
sold off to a Chinese consortium for a fraction of the price it
cost to build it.
Today the buildings
are open to industry for the establishment of offices and factories.
||The view from
the road does not do justice to the sheer size of this place.
And then just
over the hill lies Hartebeespoort dam. A favourite with most Jo'burgers
If it's fishing
you like, jet-skiing or yachting, it's all here.
||And the villas
of the rich and famous. So many new constructions are taking place
that it's hard to keep up. This area is close to the dam wall, and
was one of the first settlements after the town itself.
||The bridge over the wall. Coming from town side you
travel through a short single lane tunnel. On the other side there
are flea markets galore, specialising in all things African. And over
weekends this place is a nightmare with traffic.
From 'town-side' looking out over the yacht club.
Peaconwood Estate lies straight across. Constant problems with the
water itself is costing the locals a bundle. But with hundreds of
motorcyclists on their breakfast runs every Sunday, and every other
bored Jo'burger getting some fresh air, they cannot afford the stench
that sometimes just about choke the regulars.
Krugersdorp has been renamed after a tribe who used
to live here. This is also the place where the mayor of Mogale City
(Krugersdorp) bought an official residence.
