The Townships

We had been seeing many shanty towns in our travels.  almost every city, town and village seemed to have one on its outskirts.  we were curious and a bit amazed at the profound poverty we were seeing.

At the end of our city tour or guide offered to take us for a short drive through a Township outside one of the seaside neighbourhoods in and around Capetown.

The homes are made from scrounge materials and have minimal services.  Water is available from a central tap and electricity is stolen from street lights.  a that said, there were many shops, services, and the community its seemed busy and thriving.
