District Six

Just a quick note before this quickie entry... I've been really busy lately and haven't had the time to add much here... but the good news is that there isn't that much left to go... don't forget to check in... everything should be up by the first week of December. Now, on with District Six... :-)

At the start of our township tour, our guide took us to the District Six Museum. It's a very interesting museum, and unfortunately, we didn't spend as much time here as we ought to have as we had a schedule to stick to.

The museum focuses on the history of District Six in Cape Town, with reconstructions of the homes and businesses of District Six and other interesting exhibits. It also displays bits and pieces of the apartheid legacy – benches for Europeans only, whites only signs, etc...

The historical information is well worth reading. Yet seeing is believing... if you're ever in Cape Town, don't forget to make a stop here...
