Sonntags geschlossen

February 28, 2010


Sunday, closed.deutsch„Sonntags geschlossen.“ Das Museum, das Restaurant. „Geschlossen.“ Alle Museen, alle Galerien sind Sonntags geschlossen. Die meisten Restaurants sind Sonntags geschlossen. Nur ein paar Ausnahmen. Die großen, die ganz ganz großen Shopping Zentren halten wohl Johannesburg mit einer Notbesetzung am Leben – wenn man den Aufenthalt in Shopping Zentren denn „Leben” nennen kann. Ansonsten müsste es tatsächlich über Johannesburg heissen: „Sonntags geschlossen.“

english“Closed on Sunday.” That’s what you read at the entrances of the museum, at the restaurant. All Museums and galleries are closed on Sunday, most of the restaurants are closed on Sunday. There are hardly any exceptions. It is the big, the really huge shopping centres that keep Johannesburg alive on Sunday – if you want to consider staying in a shopping centre as being alive. If not, it really would make sense to call Johannesburg “closed on Sundays”.
