Johannesburg: South Africa’s powerhouse
- sarahbrowngb, CNN iReport producer
My name is Richard and I am from New York City, I traveled to Johannesburg in August of this year, 2013. Traveling with a tour group we went to Cape Town and on some safaris also through out South Africa.
The history of Johannesburg was fascinating to me. I thought I understood South Africa but once there I was surprised at how different the city was to me. Being an experienced traveler and having been to a few rural areas in Rio Brazil and Mumbai India I found the people in Soweto to be by far the friendliest people I have met as of yet. The small children in school, the kids playing in the streets and the vendors we spoke with.
If you want to understand South Africa then Johannesburg is a must stop on your tour of this amazingly beautiful country. Enjoy.
