Wow, what an amazing experience in Soweto today on our bicycle tour! Organised by Lebo’s Backpackers in Soweto, it was a 4 hour bicycle tour through Soweto, touching on local life, a shebeen visit, Miriam Makeba‘s home suburb, Mandela House, Desmond Tutu‘s house and local food.
It was such an amazing experience, I can’t even explain it. @ClareMelina and I are going to start a blog on our “i heart Jozi” excursions and this will be our first post, but while I was looking through my photos from today, I couldn’t resist doing a quick post to show you.
The kids were definitely my highlight of the tour. They are all smiling and friendly and being real kids…playing outside like we used to in the “old days”. They happily pose for photos with big smiles on their faces in exchange for sweeties…’shoot me’ they say…hmmm!
I absolutely loved it. Soweto is not scary at all and so culturally rich. Every Joburger needs to experience it.
Keep tuned in for updates on our new Jozi blog coming up, but in the meantime feast your eyes on my pics.
