Johannesburg, South Africa
18 Apr, 2013 | From Ruhan Robinson of South Africa
This is my first postcard from South Africa. It shows a city view of Johannesburg - Africa's financial and economic hub.
Johannesburg also known as Jozi, Joburg, Joni, eGoli or Joeys,is the largest city in South Africa, by population. Johannesburg is the provincial capital of Gauteng, the wealthiest province in South Africa, having the largest economy of any metropolitan region in Sub-Saharan Africa.
The city is one of the 50 largest urban agglomerations in the world, and is also the world's largest city not situated on a river, lake, or coastline. It claims to be the lightning capital of the world, though this title is also claimed by others.
