The first stop on our journey through South Africa’s past this week was the Slave Lodge. Lucy informed us about Slavery in Cape Town and afterwards we had the chance to see a special Nelson Mandela exhibition.
The next day we learned more about the time when South Africa was ruled under an Apartheid government. We visited the District Six Museum and Noor told us about his personal experiences during this difficult time.
On the last Language Excursion we celebrated the Freedom of Movement by taking a train to Langa, the oldest Township of South Africa. Zozo, who used to live there, guided us through his hometown, showing us around. Before we returned to the city we ate Vetkoek.
The week was very interesting and everybody gained some insight into what happened in the past.
