March 28 Photo of the Day: South Africa

Bo-Kaap, Cape Town, South Africa © 2014 Peter Marble

February 9, 2012 – day 18 in Africa and the first full day in Cape Town.

One of our first stops was Bo-Kaap, located at the base of Signal Hill. Many inhabitants of the area are descended from slaves, known as Cape Malays brought to the Cape by the Dutch from Malaysia, Indonesia and elsewhere. Why the buildings are so colorful is unknown, however some suggest that it is a reflection of the bright personalities of the residents.


  1. Awesome photo! How can you not smile while walking down that street?

    1. Thanks Kristine - Bo-Kaap was one of many Cape Town highlights!
