L A N G A T O W N S H I P 🏚👦🏾 Blessed are they who see beautiful things in humble places, where others see nothing ✨ Der Besuch des Langa Townships war wirklich ein tolles und prägendes Erlebnis. Es war erschreckend zu sehen unter welchen Bedingungen die Menschen dort leben. Gleichzeitig war es aber auch schön zu sehen, wie glücklich und dankbar sie dennoch für alles sind 🙏🏼🙏🏼 Die Kids waren unglaublich goldig und haben sich über einen 🍭 gefreut als wäre es Weihnachten #heartmelting 😍 Definitiv ein Highlight unserer Reise 🙌🏼 #langa #township #langatownship #capetown #southafrica

Langa is one of the many areas in South Africa that were designated for Black Africans before the apartheid era. Following the removal of Black people from Ndabeni location, near Maitland, in the late 1920s, the authorities established Langa location outside Cape Town. . . . Pictured on the steps of a what was once a church in Lanaga. Visiting this township, the people and children were one of my major highlights while in Cape Town. Langa means “sun.” The locals carried that light and bright spirit through stories they shared. Even in some areas that weren’t the best living conditions, still smiles. What will you choose to smile about today? I’m smiling because I have my health and peace of mind😃 #happyhumpday #wherelifemeetsliving

Lying in the shadows of Cape Town is Langa, a Township community of over 52,000 people. Visiting this community has been one of the greatest life experiences. The people were so welcoming and full of enthusiasm. Langa made me realize that there is so much more to South Africa than the picturesque coast of Cape Town. @tomjauncey

Hey guys, look at this awesome “behind the scenes” shot @myownphotocoach took of me on location in Langa Township! I noticed this girl walking to church with her mom, both dressed so nicely! I stopped and asked if I can photograph her and they were super happy to comply :) Scroll to see the best two shots of the series, one of which had been posted to my blog in black and white. . . . #southafrica #visitsouthafrica #capetownsouthafrica #langatownship #travelafrica #traveltheworld #travelislife #ilovetotravel #nikond750 #nikonworld #nikonlife #behindthescenes #onlocation #ilovenikon #ilovephotography #travelphotography #streetphotography #girlsborntotravel #blogginglife #bloggingals #makeithappen #thiscreativelife #thisphotographylife

Hey guys, thanks so much for following me and for all the Insta love! For all you who are new followers, likers or simply lurkers, here is some info about me. I’m Megan, I’m Florida based and I’m obsessed with photography. I also happen to be an ER doc. When I’m not in the ED, I travel the globe and take photos of people and the beautiful landscapes around me. I want to inspire you with my photography to get out and see as much of this world as possible for yourself! I believe travel is life changing and that no amount of reading or passive education can ever substitute the travel experience. Thank you for joining me on my photographic journey 💜 I hope we’ll become more than followers, for what’s the use of social media if not to make new friends :) Please let me know where you’re from and what are the three things I should know about you - I’d love to get to know you more! . . . #southafrica #visitsouthafrica #capetownsouthafrica #langatownship #travelafrica #traveltheworld #travelislife #ilovetotravel #traveldiaries #nikonworld #nikonlife #theinstagramlab #ilovenikon #ilovephotography #womeninphotography #girlsborntotravel #blogginglife #bloggingals #makeithappen #thiscreativelife #30daysofSC #internationalchildrensday #thisphotographylife

| Semester at Sea Chronicles | Langa Township, South Africa | October 11, 2017 | Langa Township and Happy Feet Youth Project | Smiley: a boiled sheep head. Smiley is a delicacy and a street food favorite in South African townships. When the sheep head is boiled, the skin recedes around the mouth, producing a smile like expression. In this picture, the woman cooks and prepares smileys in the streets of Langa. The yellow substance she wears on her face protects her skin from the fires unforgiving heat. And no, I did not have the opportunity to taste this delicacy, though I’m not sure I would’ve been brave enough to try it. #Travel #Explore #Wanderlust #Travelgram #adventure #studyabroad #semesteratsea #sasfall2017 #geotourism #natgeotravel #nationalgeographic #yourshotphotographer #lifeisgood #natgeotraveler #semesteratseachronicles #SouthAfrica #Langa #township #Langatownship #townshiptourism #propoortourism #smiley #delicacy #streetfood

Melanin royalty... Take a good look at this face, because you’re going to see it again. I met this 2 year old during a visit to Langa Township in the Western Cape of South Africa, the first of many communities where black people were confined during the Apartheid era. Two decades post-Apartheid, Langa remains a segregated, all-black community where many live without electricity, running water or sanitation. But this beautiful girl showed me that what her community lacks in resources, they make up for in strength. Soon after meeting this toddler, I learned that she is an absolute genius. At the age of only 2, she can add, subtract and multiply any numbers - large or small - on command within milliseconds. At two!!! One of her big sisters gave her a pop quiz when we showed up, and we were so blown away by her brilliance that my aunt gifted her a medallion that was made in honor of my late uncle, Henry Ely Wheaton II (aka Mr Rissho), a brilliant human being in his own right. She’s wearing his medallion in the photo, and she was so proud of it. As I prepare to leave this beautiful country, I pray that the strength of God, the strength of our ancestors, and the strength of black people all across the globe, carry this little girl to places and heights her little heart can’t even conceive of at the tender age of two. Remember this this face; I promise you’ll see it again. #🇿🇦 #CAPETOWN #langatownship #melanin #strength #fotografia #photographersofsouthafrica

Although it was sad to see the abject poverty that still exists in the Townships, we were glad to hear that strides are being made to improve the living conditions of its residents. For us it was a very special experience. The residents were happy to see us and showed us their homes/ work, The kids were invited to play soccer with some other kids and had fun with each other. So many happy faces! An experience I’ll never forget! Book your tour at @Camissa_travel.

Cape Town from the inside 🚥 Life experience in the oldest township of the city, Langa (“Sun” in Xhosa dialect) • Selected views . . . #langatownship #realcapetown #postapartheid #speechless #bestexperienceever

A neighborhood as a canvas • Langa, Cape Town, South Africa ⁣ ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ ⁣Off to the right of the N2 highway, rows of concrete tenements flare a little more than usual. Instead of the dull, depressing facades of many government construction projects, the sides of these buildings are home to more color. Towering, animated faces and figures splatter the concrete canvases of Langa. It’s what excited me most on my first walk. A gallery to international art competitions, amateur, and local artists, wall after wall represent scenes from South African life and their famous icons. Swipe to see more. ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ #langa #langatownship #langacapetown #capetown #capetownsouthafrica #capetownlife #capetowninfo #capetownart #capetownmag #southafrica #art #streetart #streetartglobe #streetartnews #streetartporn #streetartgallery #travel #artistsoninstagram #capetownguide

Langa is Cape Town’s oldest township. In South Africa, the term township refers to the often underdeveloped segregated urban areas that, from the late 19th century until the end of apartheid, were reserved for non-whites. Townships were usually built on the periphery of towns and cities. They stand to this day as a daily reminder of the deep inequity in my country. They are also places of warmth, culture and smiles. These ladies cook and sell the traditional sheep head delicacy of the Xhosas.
