After a long and sad goodbye from Karen and Frank and their dog ( If you happen to stay at their place, make sure you ask Frank a few questions and prepare for long and wildly winded answers) we were ready to hit the big city. Get ready for Cape Town!
We were staying in Cape Town for three nights again, one night happened to be New Years Eve. Cape Town is such a beautiful city but i am well aware that not everything is beautiful there. I read a book about Gang activities and townships. About the huge gap that is dividing the rich from the poor. And you can see and feel all of this. There are places like the Waterfront where everything is super hip and there are museums and bars and design shops, food markets and whatnot. But there are also corners in Cape Town that are not as shiny. We booked an apartment in District Six. And yes i was very excited because Claudia Six was living in District Six. But this district actually has a very sad history and is now slowly coming back to life. HERE is a link to a blog about the history of Cape Town and district Six, if you are interested.
