Does your heart start beating fast when you think of how expensive Johannesburg can be? Mine does, but this weekend I worked out how to ‘do Jozi cheaply.’ Here is my Saturday diary.

Wake up, stretch, and have someone bring you coffee in bed. Preferably your Johannesburg Guesthouse staff, but your partner would also be okay! Sip, roll over, sleep…
