I’m Netanja, a freelance journalist, but I blog here about cool and unusual stuff in Johannesburg, South Africa. Sometimes I post other things too, such as finding the best junk in my parents’ garage or visiting places that aren’t in Joburg.

I was recently asked about the blog’s name, so I guess it’s time to explain. It’s from a skit (here) on Saturday Night Live where Olya Povlatsky (Kate McKinnon) says: “No Seth, in my dream house, I have a bear with me.”

It’s a whole lot of random, but I think we may all need our very own bears with us at times.

Hope you enjoy the blog – and find your bear!
