How the well-off live in South Africa

Categories: Sub-Saharan Africa, South Africa, Travel

Beneburundi [1] [FR] on how the well-off in South Africa live: “South Africa was so different from what I could have imagined. It was like the US in Africa: immense cities, high-security neighborhoods, huge expressways where the last Mercedes and other show-off cars, unending shopping districts that are even laid out in small towns, giant billboards, fast food, fast food and more fast food. In brief, a society of over-consumption where those who have the means (or take them) gorge themselves until they are overflowing with money and fat.”
