Congress 2009

Its been quite a while since I posted anything here.. I’ve been pretty busy lately, so I haven’t really had time for stuff like this.. But I thought I’d catch up a bit..

So Yeah.

Catching up

I thought I’d break this little hiatus with a quick post to share some photos from my trip to Pretoria last week.

What a rad week!

Basically, all the schools of architecture from around the country get together in the same city for a few days once a year. In the glorious name of architecture we attend guest lectures, meet new people, sleep in tents and party pretty hard! =P

This year was held in Pretoria, which I must admit, I was pretty surprised to discover is actually a REALLY beautiful city. I had always assumed it was pretty similar to Jo’burg, but its not at all. Definitely a place I’d love to visit again.

Road to PTA

We arrived a day early and explored Pretoria. I went out that night to a little restaurant/bar/club effort that I can’t remember the name of, and watched a couple bands play. Good start. The next day we did the typical tourist thing from a couple of really cool, low rider busses..

Busses

We drove around the city, and eventually stopped off at the union buildings which are so beautiful. I love being a tourist!

Union Gardens

Their University is really pretty, kind of puts mine to shame.

Tuks

But more about that next time..
