They say Asia is dirty… Johannesburg -South Africa

People ask me all the time why I love Asia so much!

The first thing most people think about when they think of Asian countries is the rubbish. They think those countries are dirty. I do agree to a certain point on that! The Asian people tend to throw everything on the street, they don’t think about their invironment or those kind of subjects.

But in all countries where the sun shines all year long, where people live out on the streets much more then European or American colder countries it is a mess out there. You would think it should be the other way around but it’s not..

Just to show you what you can find walking 2 km from Brown Sugar Backpackers to Eastgate Shoppingmall in Joburg, Jozi, Egoli or as you might know it: Johannesburg 🙂 in South Africa.

Just to show you the street I was walking. It is in a good neighbourhood. It’s not in a township where you might expect it to be messy.
