    ... hot tin roofs. In some areas I can touch the shacks on both sides of the "street".

    Originally meant to house 500 people Imizamo Yethu now houses 35,000 with residents including transients from Asia, China, India and Europe. By way of comparison the Cape Town airport Township is home to 1.4M people.
