Who are these lost souls? These urban nomads that wander through the streets. Lives of unasked and unanswered questions. This lady has been roaming Joburg for almost ten years now. There are many nicknames for her. Little Red Riding Hood (she always wears a hood or cape) is the one that seems to have stuck. I have seen her over the years add layer after layer of strange capes and blankets and carry plastic bag after plastic bag full of mystery. I made eye contact with her this morning and smiled. She shook her head and looked away and muttered things that I couldn’t hear. She is one of the many lost souls that seem to find purpose in wandering. One of the secret icons of Joburg.
