Just caught up on this thread - great job!

One thing that strikes me immediately is how many South African chains are present in pictures of Sub-Saharan cities. Shoprite, Simply Asia, RocoMamas, Woolworths, The Local Grill, etc. Maybe it shouldn't be but still seems a bit surprising now. Of course all the international fast food brands, retailers and media corporations have their sub-Saharan headquarters in Sandton and the banks in Joburg CBD.
