A Shopping Centre with a Difference

A mall is a mall is a mall, right? Wrong! This is a Moo!-ll with a difference.
It is located in Irene, a village at the edge of Pretoria. This village is fast becoming a very sought-after location due to its proximity to Midrand and Johannesburg and all sorts of interesting things are happening there.

I haven't been there for a while, so was very surprised and amused by this wonderfully different shopping mall. Irene used to be a dairy farm in the country-side outside Pretoria. The working dairy is still there but is now surrounded by a bustling town. Obviously the farm spirit is still very much alive!

Watch out!

Even the man-hole covers are themed!

The restaurants are built around a wonderful atrium with a fountain that keeps the children occupied while the parents take a coffee/lunch break. So much fun!
