SOWETO, SOUTH AFRICA FEBRUARY 1: Locals enjoy a lunch in an outdoor restaurant on February 1, 2014 on Vilakazi Street in Orlando section of Soweto, South Africa. Vilakazi Street is full of restaurants, bars, and souvenir shops and is a meeting point for locals and visiting tourists. Both Desmond Tutu and Nelson Mandela once lived here a few blocks from each other. Soweto 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)
