People of my City

I often hear complaints about Pietermaritzburg. It lacks the artistic vitality of Cape Town. It doesn’t have the balmy beaches of Durban. Joburg is where it’s happening for business. Whilst all of these are true, Maritzburg does have something that we often overlook. People. Van Gogh apparently said that there’s nothing more truly artistic than to love people. If that’s true, then Maritzburg has the potential to be an authentically artistic city.
