I am back in South Africa. I decided to stay in Soweto, which is a township just southwest of Johannesburg. It was an interesting experience.
Soweto stands for South Western Township. It is where the whites pushed the blacks out after a threatening plague in Joburg during the gold rush.
Soweto has come a long way since Apartheid. I walked around town and felt safe, even though I was a white person on my own.
The famous 4 hour bike tour. Off we go!
This is the less affluent part of town. They do not have running water and electricity like on the block I am staying.
Here we tried some local beer, made famous during the Apartheid years.
Nelson Mandela's house.
My cozy accommodation.
Every night at the hostel, we had a lovely campfire.
