Arrival in Johannesburg, dinner of pizza and wine

We arrived in Johannesburg late yesterday afternoon. After fetching our bags, we rode the spotless Gautrain light rail to the stop closest to our hosts’ home, then took an Uber van the last few miles.

We had a lovely dinner out at a nearby pizza place, accompanied by another sauvignon blanc we happened to have tasted in the Stellenbosch region last week. In addition to the grated parmesan cheese we typically see in the U.S., pizza here appears to be served with minced garlic and minced chilies. I’m still tasting the garlic this morning. The night ended with a drink at the local pub.

The weather is quite pleasant here. It’s warm but dry. It was nice to take a shower this morning and not feel like I was still sweating after I toweled off.
