Every city has their element or elements that make it unique from all other cities. Some call it the hidden gem of the city, some say it’s the picture the media will never show you, others claim it’s the beauty in the chaos. I call it the part of town you walk past and fail to take notice. The problem with living in a city for so long is that, we walk past features that show the beauty of the city. The parts of the city that make it unique. You have the common features – Cape Town’s Table Mountain, New York’s Grand Central Park, Paris’ Eiffel Tower – and then you get the hidden gems. All you have to do is be a tourist in your own city for you to find them.
