Mashongwe in Soweto

Picture 27 of 28

Spend less, see more. That's the theme of Chapter 7, and was how I became the first white person invited into a her home in Soweto in South Africa. (She had previously worked for the architects of Apartheid as a domestic servant, so no wonder.) I was on an informal tour with the neighbor of the owner of an out-of-the-way very cheap guest house. Or you could take an expensive day trip to Soweto and not meet her. Your choice.
