Interaction with guests
I am generally around to assist with queries and help you find places. If not, other house guests will. My neighbours are very helpful also and will gladly advise, if I am not around. The culture here is quite open and you may speak if you have questions ; we do not regard friendly conversation as being intrusive and you will find that people tend to have a sense of humour. Enjoy it!

About the neighbourhood
A very ordinary area of working people and small business owners, who tend to mind their own business but will help each other when required. Populated by teachers, operational managers and lower middle-income earners. Families are young to maturing with few geriatrics. Two schools nearby, both private. Mosque nearby and a small non-descript church building. The area is very mixed and displays signs of Apartheid history, which is obvious in the buildings in surrounding roads. All 'races' and many religions/cultures live here, as well as many nationalities. Shopping for daily necessities is easy and public transport is nearby.
Getting around
Public taxi and busses all converge at Wetton Circle, 10 minute walk away. Other busses stop outside Spar supermarket, which is 4 minute walk from the house. Public transport stops after around 8pm, when Uber taxi is needed. Train stations are a bit further and guests do not generally use them. If you use public transport, bus and train are the usual options. However, hiring your own car is most convenient, especially if your time is limited.
