Along the N2

Yesterday I posted a tour of downtown Cape Town and commented that the city changed radically from one area to the next.

When I say radically, I do mean radically. On the N2, one of the main roads that loops through and around the city, you pass from extreme wealth, to extreme poverty, and back.

If you fly into Cape Town, you pass by shacks and shanties along the main road on your way into the city from the airport, passing some of the townships on the way in: Khayelitsha, Nyanga, Athlone.

I took these photos along that stretch of road on my way back from Stellenbosch.

To remind you, this is what Stellenbosch looks like:

And these are pictures of the township:
