You just have to press enter after each individual image code to insert a space between each image code that has been pasted. It does seem to have been done automatically with your “Sandton” Post though.

GREAT I CAN FINALLY CONTRIBUTE PROPERLY TO SCC COZ IM NOW IN AFRICA!! + cool!! theres spaces now inbetween my pics..man i cant quite remember what construction site that pic was that i took, this was my first time in sandton, really thought it wouldve been much bigger than what it was, maybe its because part of it is on a hill (it seems to me) so maybe thats distorting the view a lil bit. Other than that on arrival everything in jozi is really cool, gautrain ride was really fast, although the only annoying thing was the service at places like airport customs, airport shops and even some of the restaurants in nelson mandela sq. The staff at these places seemed to get angry very easily when "they failed to understood what i was talking about", and that was sorta a buzz killer. Anyway i got a few questions, should i express my dissatisfaction with service when appropriate in a nice way?or should i let it go?coz its really frustrating me some times and also do i have to tip when i go to restaurants? coz when i was a kid i dont really remember my parents tipping, i thought when they where giving people at these places a lil extra, thought they where just being nice?cheers!!

It is good to hear that you are enjoying your experience of Johannesburg so far. I might not live in SA anymore but I do surely miss the nice things in SA every day.

I think you should try to complain but not necessarily with the expectation of compensation. As long as you are being polite, the situation should stay cool.

I think that you should definitely tip, because in SA service charges are not included at a restaurant in the advertised price (or that is what my idea about the situation has always been but I might be wrong). Anyway, read this article to have some idea about tipping in SA.

Hells bells... Seriously?

A tip is purely a gesture for good service, if the service hasn't been up to your liking or standards you don't tip....

And I've had a restuarant add a "Service Charge" to my bill once before... I removed it, paid for the food, left and will never frequent that restuarant ever again....
