You Are Here – Pretoria

Good news everyone! Another mug from You Are Here Series has been released by Starbucks. As it states at the official Starbucks South Africa Facebook page they are offering this mug at newly build coffee shop located in Menlyn Maine, Pretoria. Menlyn Maine is a business district being developed in the east of Pretoria, near Menlyn Shopping Mall, off Garsfontein road. They are working hard to become the 1st Green City in Africa. In it’s turn Pretoria is one of the country’s three capital cities, where the executive branch of government reside.

So what was the motive for the new mug? By looking at it we can see Union Buildings where the South African government and also the offices of the president of South Africa reside, Palace of Justice which is currently the headquarters of the Gauteng Division of the High Court of South Africa. These city elements are accompanied with beautiful South African nature. We can only see the tree (my guess it’s the Big Baobab) and a giraffe from the pic, but I am positive there is more on the other side of the mug. The last but not least – I can see rugby goal with a ball, obviously referring to South Africa national rugby union team.

Alright, and the main question, how can we get our hands on one of these mugs? Well, I believe it will be hard to get one, as there are only three coffee shops in the whole country. My best guess – monitor ebay for these mugs and please, please, please report in the comments or at our forum.
