Photos - Every Day life in Cape Town

South Africa is a unique country - with extremes of poverty and wealth. Here are some photos featuring a few ways Cape Town is able to meet the needs of our family.

Note: Three townships are located within a 10 minute drive from most of the locations pictured below.
