Gautrain

On 8 June 2010, we got to ride on the Gautrain for the first time. It was the very first day the Gautrain was open, an eagerly-awaited day, since the long-ago days back in 2006 when Xander used to bring a milk crate to Rosebank to look at the Gautrain diggings. I went in the morning and bought our Gautrain gold cards, meeting a friend who lives in England at the ticket booths! Then after school, we set off on foot for the nearest Gautrain bus stop in Rosebank (there is a temporary bus until the Rosebank station opens next year).
