From the Paper:

"Those who call Jozi home will tell you that there is something very special about the bustling city. The financial strong arm of Africa is a cultural explosion of diversity, with virtually every African and international identity represented in the city of gold. From China town, to Greek, Italian and Portuguese communities sharing common ground with Nigerian nationals and Argentinian businessmen, Johannesburg is a melting pot of diversity where all ages, races and nationalities come together to form a proud world-class city."
