SOWETO, SOUTH AFRICA JANUARY 4: Black bikers ride their big bikes outside the historic Hector Pieterson Museum on January 4, 2013 in the Orlando section of Soweto, South Africa. Some newly wealthy Sowetans can afford to buy luxuries such as fancy houses, cars and bikes. Soweto today is a mix of old housing and newly constructed townhouses. A new hungry black middle-class is growing steadily. Many residents work in Johannesburg but the last years many shopping malls have been built, and people are starting to spend their money in Soweto. (Photo by: Per-Anders Pettersson)
