Hey again, guys!
After such a full first day in South Africa, we packed in different things for the second day.
This was a harder day for our family friend, since we went to the District 6 museum. District 6 was a mixed neighborhood that was split apart when apartheid began. All the buildings but the churches were bulldozed in an effort to pretend that different racial groups had never inhabited the same spaces in harmony. Because of the history, the District 6 museum is a hard- hitter. Looking around at the pictures of what the place used be and comparing it to the rubble outside the building is more than enough to cement in a hatred of racism.
Then, we went off to a famous cake place: Charly's Bakery! The cakes were incredibly decorated. We sampled the lemon meringue, the chocolate truffle cake, and the plain cheesecake with a hint of lemon. Everything was good.
The day ended with a family outing to a little market. There were lots of different kinds of foods to sample, and I had the best chorizo of my life. The atmosphere was friendly, though the space was cold, and the space was buzzing and packed with people. Eventually we found a space to squeeze into and enjoyed everything we ate.
That's all for now!
