Under the freeway

Strand Street under the Settlers Freeway isn’t really a place where many of Port Elizabeth’s suburban inhabitants wander but if you do you’ll encounter interesting scenes, vendors and shops that you won’t really find anywhere else. The painting on the freeway support pillar is one of a series of colourful and evocative portraits that depict young South Africans from a range of cultural backgrounds.  It forms part of Route 67 and is called IDENTITIES.

    It's probably not that hot in Port Elizabeth right now, but it does look like a nice place to cool off.(Thanks for your blog comments. The fjord on the photo was the Geirangerfjord, and the town is Geiranger. Both are very popular with cruise ships. The waters in the fjord are as deep as the mountains are tall.)

    Well, that is a good use of what would otherwise be unused space! I like the mural.
