Hey, I’m Melanie!

Johannesburg, South Africa · Member since May 2012

I'm originally from Canada but have been living in Johannesburg, South Africa for the past 21 years. I worked in South African trade unions and social movements for many years and now work mainly with workers in the informal economy, as part of an international NGO and as an academic based at Wits University. For work I travel frequently in Asia, Africa and Latin America and always try to tag on extra days to explore. Wherever I go the first things I look for are salsa clubs, yoga studios, markets, bookstores and great coffee. I've loved staying with Air bnb hosts in Thailand, Hungary, Japan, the US and Italy.
