South Africa - Johannesburg

Johannesburg - We stayed at a fantastic boutique hotel (The Saxon) in the middle of one of the nicest parts of the city, each home a huge enclosed fortress.  It was really surreal in a way: the crime and fear of crime permeates the vibe in the city.  But we did have a driver take us into Soweto and we did get a pretty good picture of the history of aparteid in the country.  It is still very much a work in progress.  But I can’t say enough about The Saxon.  If you choose to spend some time in JoBerg, this place is amazing.  Room, food, spa - we loved it.
