Piet saves Soweto dinner

Piet saves Soweto dinner

I hired a bus for our company's dinner night (majority being white staff members).  I had booked for dinner at Sakhumzi Restaurant in Soweto and kept it as a surprise for my colleagues..

Avis sent us a very helpful driver, I still remember his name was Piet. He did all that he was supposed to do before driving off, but I asked him not to say where we were heading off to. When we started approaching Soweto some of my colleagues could see where we were heading and started to panic.

The Avis driver was of great help though, as he turned the trip into a tour and started explaining all the landmarks that we came across.  He tried very hard to make them feel relaxed and comfortable in an area that otherwise made them feel a little uncomfortable. In the end our dinner night was a great success.  Thank you Avis.
