Edition 22 of 2004, Friday 11 June 2004
Washed by the warm waters of the Indian Ocean, Durban, KwaZulu Natal, with its subtropical coastline, Durban, which is often referred to as South Africas Miami Beach, is to enjoy temperatures between 11° and 28° this week and is generally blessed with balmy weather all year round, making it a perfect holiday paradise, especially in rather cold winters time.
Durban also is one of the fastest-growing urban areas in the world; its port is the busiest in South Africa and also one of the 10 largest in the world. In terms of business, the city already has a good reputation and the solid foundations upon which the economy can grow, being South Africa's second largest industrial hub. The city is a mix of racial and cultural diversity, with its African, Asian and European influences creating a vibrant cosmopolitan society. The EMA currently has an estimated population of just over 3 million people, where a house with a past demands an owner who can imagine its future! Read more in Focus on.
Focusing on interior styling: Middle Eastern style has faded, Americana and traditional English have blossomed and are now among new directions in home furnishings. Americana and American country will be strong, but they will be modernized for the 21st century. Find out about the recently emerged new trend that is all about comfort - physical comfort as well as comfort for the heart - and about nostalgia in Have Fun today.
