Cape Town is one of my favourite cities in the world – nothing new for those of you who’ve been following me for a while. 😉 With the intense blue of the Atlantic Ocean at its doorstep and the imposing Table Mountain as a backdrop, Cape Town is such an incredibly stunning city! One of my favourite neighbourhoods in Cape Town is Bo Kaap, where many Cape Malays live, a predominantly Muslim community, who were brought to the Cape in the 16th and 17th centuries by the Dutch from parts of Eastern Africa and as far as present-day Malaysia and Indonesia. With its vivid colours, Bo Kaap is an urban photographer’s dream. It’s a great experience to stroll around this neighbourhood but check out one of the spice shops, visit the Bo Kaap Museum or join a Cape Malay cooking course to truly immerse yourself in the unique Bo Kaap culture and history.
