Today I am going to share some pictures of decorative stones adorning the O.R. Tambo International Airport in Johannesburg, South Africa. I’ve flown through O.R. Tambo a dozen times or more, and I always appreciate the beautiful decorative stones that are found throughout the airport. I took the pictures in this post from the area around the security check-in for the international terminal. I apologize that the quality of these pictures isn’t fantastic. I took these photos somewhat slyly with my Blackberry phone, and I didn’t pause for too long to examine the decorative stones. The security guards look at you suspiciously when you start investigating the walls of the terminal too carefully.
I don’t know much about these decorative stones or where they came from– can anyone provide me with more information on them? All I know is that they are GORGEOUS and make my layovers in the airport much more enjoyable.
