    ... The District Six museum was an interesting one. They have people working there that had lived and were evacuated from their homes and remember it like it was yesterday. They have on display the retrieved street name signs from District Six and to read the newspaper cuttings and see photos of the removals was just so sad. Greenmarket Square I loved. So colourful and full of lively stand owners selling bracelets, charms, paintings and general tat but it's good fun! They all ...

    ... Red Bus Tour again, the hop on hop off experience to remind ourselves of the rest of the city. A new stop this time was the District 6 Museum which tells of how some 60,000 people were forced to leave their homes and move out of the city during the time of apartheid in the seventies. Although only a small museum the stories, quotes and photos give it such personal meaning, such realism. It's illuminating and as we felt in Cambodia and Vietnam, astonishing that such behaviour ...

    South Africa: Day 1

    ... that used to be a house, where we had dinner. There were men playing drums and they prepared a great meal for us. It was familiar food with a South African aspect in it. There was rice, cooked veggies, potatoes, beef stew, chicken, and potato wedges. It was so good!! Then we learned a dance and got to play the drums. It was so fun.

    It was pretty late by then so we came back to our house and just hung out for the rest of the night and relaxed. I loved my first day here.

    ... cool being at the very end of Africa, and it is a wild coast. After the point we went to go and see the Africa penguins! They are really adorable. We saw the, waddling around, surfing in the waves, cuddling with their babies, and doing other penguin like things. See pictures ���� On our way back we stopped in the fishing village, Hout Bay, for some delicious Hake (a very rich and flaky white fish) and calamari and chips which was delicious and recommended ...
