    The Newtown area is one of Johannesburg's most interesting examples of urban renewal and cultural diversity. The city is changing daily and becoming increasingly more colourful in the eyes and hearts of the people.

    Was really interesting and def suggest it. We could not see the A4 pic of a dog! but maybe we were being dof. We also thought it would be a good idea to ALWAYS have the directive for the next step at the end of each sound clip consistently. They sometimes ended without saying where to next and had to take the phone out my arm pouch and look. but all in all fantastic and would suggest to anyone keen
