hola!!! Ola !!!! Guess what you've already learned your first Soweto slang word. Join us as we hop on a bicycle together for some real township flavor, & cycle the streets of Orlando east and west one of the first townships in Soweto as you experience the local food for your taste buds, having beers with local people at our local taverns (pubs) and having more than just a jol. We'll kick off our ride at my Book Ibhoni bicycle store on Vilakazi Street. The street that's known for having two Nobel prize winners. During the tour, we'll explore three attractions, Nelson Mandela House, the Hector Pieterson Museum, and the Orlando train station, allowing you to view both Orlando East, west, and Orlando Stadium. But before we start the tour, we'll have the popular township breakfast which is amagwinya (Fat cakes or vetkoeks') enjoyed with different cold meats. For lunch we have the famous sandwich called a Kota, similar to a burger but not just a burger, but a famous South African sandwich. We will then move over to a local tavern where you'll drink, share, and have more conversations with us and more locals. Feel free to bring small bills for optional tips for the street performers at these stops. Tips are not compulsory. We do have safe parking if you are driving to us.
