DAY 1. 17 July 2017

A South African Residency


I set off for Heathrow on the 65 bus and suddenly I'm on my way to Johannesburg. The South African Airways flight takes off at 7pm and I watch the sky turn to a deep azure blue along the wing of the plane. Trying to sleep sitting up is a struggle, but there's something uncannily cosy about a night flight; hundreds of dreaming people hurtling through the pitch black sky.
