We had dinner at Moyo Restaurant in Johannesburg. It is a 'pan-African' restaurant with lots of singing and dancing by the staff during dinner. They also came by our tables to paint our faces. It was great fun and the food was terrific - especially the guinea fowl and springbok carpaccio.

Brad and Gary arrived in Johannesburg the day before Brad and Rich. Moyo was across a square from our hotel, and given our jet-lagged bodies, we decided to eat their the first night too. It was great both nights!
