[edit] Location

Practically on top of a road in Pretoria. I don't know the area at all, but it seems easily accessible.

[edit] Plans

Pitch up hopefully around 16:00, find the location (should be trivial), hang around for a while, then go get something to eat.

[edit] Expedition

mithrandi navigated to the location by car with the assistance of GPS, with froztbyte and potato riding along. Once there, we found a convenient parking spot in front of a nearby complex, and walked across the road to approximately where the spot should be. GPS reception was a little spotty, so we couldn't easily find the exact spot, but we got as close as technology would allow; the faint strains of music drifting over provided an unexpected backing soundtrack for the whole event. We stood around chatting for a bit, and were pleasantly surprised when mciversa drove up to join us unannounced. Unfortunately we didn't have any other geohashers show up, so after hanging around a little longer, we departed again to get breakfast/lunch/dinner/whatever.
