The houses in the photo below are located in Cape Town’s most colourful neighbourhood, Bo-Kaap.
It is not known exactly when or why homeowners started painting their houses in this way. The area is formerly know as the Malay Quarter. Today is it a culturally diverse area, with residents of all races and cultures. It’s a popular tourist destination and tourist buses are to be found parked outside the Bo-Kaap Museum, where all tours of the area start.

Oh – to be in Bo Kaap now that the snow is back in Massachusetts.
Even though we’re in autumn the weather is still hot.
Fabulous idea, it really makes this community unique, and interesting.

Indeed. Sitting on the slopes of the mountain adds an other-wordly feel even though the city bowl is right next door.
I like the look of this home with its different colors.
