Shonichi – There’s A First Time For Everything

After 16 hours of travel finally made it to my destination South Africa, went through Dubai didn’t really see much as I had to catch my flight however I believe my expectations on Dubai were just a bit too audacious as I was expect to be transfered between flights on automated gold chariots but the modest air conditioned buses make a nice touch. I think Dubai would be a great place to visit if I had the money however on my austerity budget the temptation to buy any thing and everything was cancelled out by my intention to remain financially stable. So I sat and waited patiently at the gate.
Upon arriving to South Africa it immediately reminded me of the Zimbabwe airport just that most things here actually work. Leaving the airport I realised that most of the warnings I had been given before my trip were simply exaggerations; my bag wasn’t stolen at the baggage claim and I wasn’t mugged for my phone, wallet, and shoes. However the most we had to deal with was an unhelpful parking attendant accusing us of swapping parking tickets with another car. We hadn’t.

Upon leaving began my first day here in which I got to see where my family members here worked and lived. There’s a lot of really nice places here which I’ll write about when I get a proper chance to check them out.

Stray observations:

There are some really nice purple lights on the motorway. They’re toll gates 😒

Food is really cheap here compared to to London had a humongous meal here for the price of a pint at most London Bars.

Got into an argument about parking which cost about 20 Rand = £1.20. Heathrow it would’ve cost £6…

I have no Rands here just $18 in cash. Not helpful need an ATM.

Song of the day: ‘A Little Piece of Heaven’ by Avenged Sevenfold


Francis and the Lights – Farewell, Starlite!

Francis and the Lights – Farewell, Starlite!

I am currently deep in love with this album, it’s got that all time great Autumn/Fall feeling. The sparse production gives it those reclusive lonesome feeling vibes that best encapsulate the thoughts of many before cuffing season officially begins.The great cold mechanical cyborg vocal effects add that extra abrasive chill factor that makes this such an alluring experience, I could listen to this all season and next season too. Thank you Francis and the Lights!

Best Songs: See Her Out, My Citys Gone & It’s Alright to Cry.


Back from the dead!

The last year has been an experience but now I’m almost back and going for a quick visit to South Africa. My passion for music has also been revitalised as I break out of my windowless cage and I also have a new passion for technology as I journey to learn more about web development and software engineering, which I will also be blogging about on top of the music. The grass is green, the skies are blue and the life is ours.

God Bless Us All!
