Global Glimpses: Cape Flats, South Africa


Gugulethu is one of South Africa’s fastest developing townships, just outside of Cape Town. When I visited in winter 2010, my new friend Ronel took me to the famous Sunday afternoon party at Mzoli’s, a butcher shop brought to life with a start-up fund from the Development Bank of South Africa.

Not only is the meat here top-quality and the braai yum but Mzoli’s happens to be one of Cape Town’s coolest hangouts, with great local DJs (see one in action above!) and a diverse crowd sporting seriously stylish looks and hairstyles.

And the next time you’re there, try the wines. Delicious!
