Explorations In Langa

July 11, 2013

A few days after arriving in Cape Town, and after a brief orientation with IES, the entire group took a trip to the Langa Township. Langa is the oldest township of its kind in Cape Town, and was originally an area designated for black South Africans to live during the apartheid era. We spent the day walking around, touring the area, and absorbing the rich culture and history of Langa. Colorful clotheslines hung between each little tin home, and children of the community ran around freely greeting us with smiles and open arms.
