'Smiley' or sheep's head is a local delicacy in Langa township. (Probably because it is one of the cheapest parts of the animal that you can buy). Woman prepare the heads in roadside stands by scorching them. They say that if you eat the eyes, you get better eye sight. And if you eat the ears, you get better hearing. 👀👂 . . . #southafrica #stunningsouthafrica2019 #visitsouthafrica #meetsouthafrica #discoversouthafrica #southafricatravel #ig_sa #ig_za #zuidafrika #instatravel #travelgram #westerncape #capetown #township #langa #langatownship

In Langa Township. A world of its own. And surely there is a day to day life with people being busy and doing their business, just like in the parallel world. . . . . . . . . #southafrica #langatownship #langa #township #colourful

"Poverty is a state of mind" Sono le 10.05 quando inizio a camminare insieme a Lele, la mia guida, nella Langa Township. Lui è nato qui, ha 29 anni e vuole cambiare il mondo, il suo mondo. "Devo restituire ciò che ho ricevuto" mi dice. La povertà non è una condizione sociale o economica, è una scelta. È mentale, non reale. "Perché se sei povero, scegli di esserlo se non fai nulla per cambiare." Per qualche minuto non parlo, penso e basta. Mentre me lo dice siamo in mezzo alla Sua città, 200.000 persone che vivono in mezzo al nulla fatto di latta ed immondizia. Il 27% delle persone che vivono qui hanno l'Aids. Mentre camminiamo tutti lo salutano, tutti ci salutano. Ha ottenuto il rispetto della Sua città perché ha fatto qualcosa per cambiare. Lui per primo per poter aiutare gli altri a cambiare. Non mancano mai i sorrisi dalle persone che vedo per strada. Ciò che pensavo fosse poco, cambia di significato. Il "poco" diventa "tanto", il "tanto" diventa "superfluo". Ci porta a vedere la casa dove viveva. Un container diviso a metà dove viveva insieme ad altre 10 persone in 12 metri quadrati. Mentre parla non smette mai di sorridere. È felice di fare ciò che fa perché è la sua missione. "Se rimani come sei è una tua scelta". Me l'ha ripetuto almeno 20 volte durante le 3 ore che abbiamo trascorso insieme. "Poverty is a state of mind" Grazie @lelembinda. ☺️ #imtillo #grattitude #langatownship #capetown #southafrica

It might seem strange (or even wrong) to some to visit a township as a tourist. But we felt we could not ignore this part of South Africa. So guide and township inhabitant Imzu took us through Langa and Khayelitsha, the two largest townships near Cape Town. We went to a shebeen, which were illicit bars during apartheid and crucial meeting places for activists. Today they are legal but equally important for social contact in the communities and have become part of South African urban culture. People gather there and share a bucket of a homebrewed beer, umqombothi. . . . #southafrica #stunningsouthafrica2019 #visitsouthafrica #meetsouthafrica #discoversouthafrica #southafricatravel #instatravel #travelgram #ig_sa #ig_southafrica #ig_ZA #westerncape #capetown #township #langa #langatownship #khayelitsha #khayelitshatownship #shebeen #umqombothi

King Anele 💎 . . The jacket is inspired on the story of King Langalibalele. Langalibalele was one of the first Black activists to be banished to Robben Island, nearly a century before Nelson Mandela and numerous other activists were imprisoned there.

We visited Langa township and were able to visit some of the homes. It was amazing to listen these brave people, how they help each others on their daily lifes. Kävimme Kapkaupungin townshipissa Langassa ja pääsimme käymään muutamassa kodissakin. Oli upeaa saada kuulla paikallisten kertomaa, kuulla heidän kokemuksiaan apartheidin aikaan ja nyt. Kiitos tästä kokemuksesta. Blogissamme on postaus vierailustamme Langassa. #langatownship #township #capetown #southafrica #kapkaupunki #matkablogi #matkalla #home #koti #life #elämä

Explore the rich, yet turbulent history of Langa. 🇿🇦 One of the oldest townships in South Africa and a key area for the resistance against the apartheid government, Langa was established in 1927. After the country’s Urban Area act was passed restricting the access of black Africans into urban areas. 😶 Designed allowing maximum visibility of residents by the authorities. It was one of the strictest areas in the country. No visitors or gatherings were allowed without permission from the superintendent. 😣 But today, Langa is known for its cultural offerings, its warmth and sense of community. 👌 And on our Street Art & Township Tour, with the Mayor of Langa, Thulani, you’ll tour the township, delve into its history and experience true African culture. 🙌 Including, the powerful street art murals which act as a voice for the people, local community centres, an apartheid museum, and even a BBQ at Thulani’s home. 😁 And just like @cammytabb, you’ll meet plenty of the delightful residents along the way. 😊 ~~~ #notintheguidebooks #NITGB #langa #langatownship #southafricatravel #southafrica #southafricatrip #southafricathroughmyeyes #southafricaza #southafrica🇿🇦 #visitsouthafrica #capetownsouthafrica #capetowninfo #capetownbest #capetownetc #traveldeeper #authentictravel #travelauthentic #travelguide #travelhistory #travelpassion
