Day 1 was spent exploring our neighborhood of Tamboerskloof and the area around the Grand Parade and Greenmarket Square downtown. Day 2 brought lots of new experiences, as we explored the District 6 Museum and saw first-hand the impact of the Group Areas Act and the forced removals under apartheid. Lunch was at Charly's Bakery, and the afternoon took us to many of the townships in the Cape Flats where Africans, coloreds, and Indians had to move. A special treat was an opportunity at the Langa Community Center to learn how to drum and play the marimba! Dinner was from the Golden Dish Take-Outs - we tried Gatsbys, curries, and salomes!
