"We believe that there is a lot of commonality between ourselves and the residents of New Orleans," Nabintu Petsana, Johannesburg tourism head, told us. "We've got a lot of culture. There are many things that link us together, unlike any other city in South Africa. We are here on a couple of days to invite, to come and visit Johannesburg, to tell them a bit more about our beautiful city and tell them to visit as tourists."
