Mr. Frog is coming from the North. He used to live in Fourways, but has decided he needs some new friends. He used to shop at a smaller mall, but has heard that Eastgate Shopping Centre has a new animal family arriving, and believes it will be an amazing way to make more friends. He will be travelling past the Wilds and then heading East along the Jukskei River to Eastgate. He has a friend who rides a bicycle, so in addition to hopping, he will be catching a ride with his friend.
He has a favourite food that he has heard he can buy at one of the take-away restaurants at Eastgate, and that’s part of the reason why he has decided to it his new home. I wonder which food he loves? On the way, he will stop off at the Wilds to have tea with his friends, and pop into the Ponti building where he also used to hang out with some buddies and listen to music and dance. He might even have time to explore the caves in the Kensington Kopjies on the way, and see the memorial near Jeppe Boys. Tell us about who Mr. Frog meets en route, and what he saw.
