Tim Charody and his Johannesburg Experiences

One thing I absolutely love about travelling is when I get to have experiences that totally challenge or change the perceptions of a place that I had before I visited it for myself.

Today was definitely one of those experiences.

While I know things have changed among the Townships of South Africa, I definitely didn’t expect to do a tour of Soweto by push-bike! Nor did I expect to be welcomed with endless warm-smiles by just about every local I came across.

I didn’t expect to be grooving on the street to a band of marimba-players, or have a djembe jam on Vilikazi Street and I definitely did not expect to go Bungee Jumping in Soweto!

Needless to say, I learned a lot about the New face of South Africa today and that the infamous Jo’burg townships are far from the scary and dangerous slum-areas that many of us who have never actually experi

enced them might perceive them to be.
