Man Surrounded by Colours - Bo-Kaap, Cape Town

 

We explored Cape Town via the "Sex and Slaves in the City" tour.
 
We covered the City Bowl, Bo-Kaap and Greenmarket Square. The day started sunny and when we were strolling through Bo-Kaap, I've seen this man who enjoyed the good winter weather.
 
Bo-Kaap, formerly known as the Malay Quarter, is traditionally a multicultural area, rich in history and situated on the slopes of Signal Hill. The area is known for its romantic cobble stoned streets.
 
 
The tour itself was also interesting as it explained lots of interesting information about the background of the Capetonians, starting with the heritage of many people and the history of their names. But we also learned how the slaves contributioted to the cuisine, language, religious diversity and to the genetic mix of the Capetonian's rainbow population.
