”ALL WHO PASS BY remember with shame the many thousands of people who lived for generations in District 6 and other parts of this city, and were forced by law to leave their homes because of the colour of their skin FATHER, FORGIVE US . . .”
The District Six Foundation was founded in 1989 and the #DistrictSixMuseum in 1994, as a memorial to the forced movement of 60,000 inhabitants of various races in District Six during Apartheid in South Africa in the 1970’s.
The floor of the museum is covered with a big map of the district with hand written notes of former inhabitants, which indicate where their houses were located. Other pieces in the museum are old traffic signs, exhibits of historical moments and lives of families from the area, historical declarations, and exhibits about the demolition.
A must visit when #TravellingToCapeTown.

When it comes to some of the most beautiful #PicturePerfectBeaches in #CapeTown, you're spoilt for choice, but #BouldersBeach offers something that all the other beaches don't, a colony of #AfricanPenguins which settled there in 1982.
#BouldersBeach is a sheltered beach made up of inlets between granite boulders, from which the name originated, and is located in the Cape Peninsula, near #SimonsTown and towards #CapePoint.
It is one of Cape Town’s most visited beaches, and the only place in the world where you get close to African Penguins.

Two great informal markets to visit when #TravellingToCapeTown.
Once a congested city street, #StGeorgesMall is now a pedestrian area in the middle of the Cape Town city centre, bustling with activity that ranges from live entertainment - provided by buskers, dancers, drummers, street artists and the like - to the sidewalk coffee shops and restaurants at which many locals and visitors to the city sit and watch people pass by.
And #GreenmarketSquare, a historical square in the centre of old #CapeTown, #SouthAfrica.
The square was built in 1696, when a burgher watch house was erected. Over the years, the square has served as a slave market, a vegetable market, a parking lot and more recently, a flea market trading mainly African souvenirs, crafts and curios.

And don’t worry if you don’t have cash on you . . . you can just pay with @snapscanapp 😉

Located in the heart of the #CapeFloralKingdom, #KirstenboschNationalBotanicalGardens was established in 1913.
From then, the gardens have matured into an extraordinarily rich and diverse flora, exemplary of #SouthernAfrica – all 36 hectares!
Don’t miss the Garden’s exotic glasshouse which contains over 7000 species in cultivation, including rare and endangered species, and from other regions of the world that cannot survive outdoors.
The #TreeTopCanopyWalkway takes visitors on an exclusive experience from the forest floor, up through the treetops and out above the canopy where you can enjoy panoramic views of the surrounding mountains, Garden and Cape Flats.

A national landmark, #RhodesMemorial lies within the #TableMountainNationalPark and the view offers panoramic vistas of industrial #CapeTown, out over the airport and the #CapeFlats, and on a clear day, the Helderberg and Hottentots Holland Mountain range.
Designed by the prolific architect Sir Herbert Baker as well as Sir Francis Macey - built in 1912, the memorial is made of bronze and Cape granite quarried from Table Mountain.
The memorial is a popular venue for tea or lunch at the restaurant, which now occupies the original cottage built by Herbert Baker between 1910 and 1912.
There is a fairly easy three hour walk from #RhodesMemorial that follows a contour path along the slopes of the mountain all the way to #KirstenboschGardens.

#FoodJams owned by @jadedewaal 💕
Food Jams | Noun
A social gathering, hosted by Jade de Waal, where friends and strangers, come together, to prepare and share in a meal, often resulting in new friendships being formed, and participants realising that they actually can cook.
And what a social gathering it was. You are met with the warm smile and vivacious energy of Jade, at her newly renovated industrial space in the heart of Cape Town. The Food Jams space sits like a little gem in the industrial surrounds of Salt River. Blueberry, lemon and rosemary filled gin warms your belly as you sit enjoying a variety of welcome snacks. Homemade hummus, creamy guacamole, cured olives and crunchy tortilla chips paired perfectly with the delicious welcome drinks. “So, we have one rule at food jams,’ Jade exciting proclaims, “there are no rules!’. And with that the afternoon begins. A ceramic pot filled with ice-cream sticks gets passed around the room, everyone grabs one, excitedly looks at their new team mate and excitement builds. Let the cooking begin. 
Guests are led to the pre-prepped stations where the recipes await. The lines of perfectly placed mushrooms, jars of condiments, heaps of fresh herbs, variety of meats and a kitchen filled with every utensil ever made makes you feel like you are about to start your first every competition of Masterchef. 
Beautiful serving dishes await the delicious food and guests arrange the food that they have created with prideful smiles. A table is set and a meal is enjoyed together. Doesn’t food always taste better when you know what it took to make it a reality? 
More drinks are poured, laughter fills the room and all the guests cheerfully chat about life, the dishes they made and the beautiful afternoon that they have had the privilege of having together. An experience that is worth every cent, with the objective thoroughly met, you can actually cook!

#CapeTown, what a beautiful place to run the #10KMPeaceRun, joining the global community of thousands of people in countries across the world, who traditionally come together to run 10km races to commemorate the United Nation’s International Day of Peace on 23rd of September 2018.
The Sanlam Cape Town Marathon is #Africa’s only IAAF Gold label status marathon.
It is managed by a partnership between WPA, the #CityOfCapeTown and ASEM Running and is endorsed by two of South Africa’s sporting greats, Elana Meyer and Francois Pienaar.
