Spaza shop wall

Last week I had the opportunity to go on a township tour with Luvu Ndima of Jama Tours.  I haven't been on one for a while and going on this one gave me lots of photo opportunities.  What makes Luvu's tours stand out is that he doesn't just drive through the township showing you the sights through the vehicle windows.  We stopped numerous times to getting a closer look at things like an informal butcher, a corner "take away", a tavern with a buy and braai option, a barber shop and all the vendors around Njoli Square.  Here Luvo offered to pose in front of this very interesting spaza shop wall.

  1. A lovely vignette of a typically South African scene! Thanks for your upbeat comments on my blog too - and dont fret too much about the wind. Its bound to blow some days, but when it is calm, it is gorgeous. And there are lots of indoor things to go if there is a foul Southeaster like the aquarium and museums. And Kirstenbosch is always out of the Southeaster - as is Clifton Beach.
