Bo-Kaap, the rainbow boutique of Cape Town’s neighbourhoods resting at the foot of Signal Hill is one of the Cape’s most distinct locations.
Bustling with history and culture, Bo Kaap offers a different experience in Cape Town, offering a side to the Cape’s culture that isn’t adorned with overpriced wines or aesthetics made with the intention to be snapped on Instagram – despite the beauty of Bo Kaap.
If you’re looking to go on a real cultural excursion and get to know the Cape from its more authentic roots then experiencing Bo-Kaap is a must. And here’s an event that will give you a little taste:
A Bo-Kaap exhibition and samosa making journey are happening this Saturday, December 11.
Learn about the lives and history of the people of the rainbow roads, whereby through stories, history telling and lesser-known facts, you’ll appreciate Bo-Kaap far more. The brightly coloured homes will no longer just seem ‘pretty’ but ‘powerful’ once you understand them as the markings of freedom of colonization’s clutches.
You’ll get to know Muslim culture in a more authentic way too – or appreciate it further.
‘Cradle to the Grave’, the exhibition’s titling will take you on a cultural trip.
And, after the tour and expansion of your mind, there’s the option to go to Fayruza’s Abraham’s home where guests will learn how to make mouth-watering samosas. Make your own, while you sip on some spicy tea too.
If you’re still hungry for more of Bo-Baap, head over to Fayruza’s neighbour, Tracey Rusemre where you can enjoy her Shine Shine mini shop – a great spot to stop off and stock up on fresh spices, rice, nuts, and other tasties to bring a bit of Bo-Kaap back with you wherever you may go.
