A very pretentious title, but I literally had to clue how to call this post. I first wanted to use a word paradise but it felt rough at times there. But then again I am not really unveiling anything here as everybody knows that South Africa is beautiful. So I will keep the title to myself. … More Go East. South African beauty revealed!
Bo-Kaap – an (over)colorful multicultural (mainly Muslim) district is where today’s adventure begins! I have to admit I wanted to see it but had no clue where to go. Stumbled across it on my way to Lion’s Head so… a great find yo! The houses do stand out.
