Travel Haiku - Bo-Kaap Of Cape Town - Poem by john tiong chunghoo

Bo-Kaap
we inspect the dreams
of first muslim settlers

South Africa
Tucked away from the bustle of Cape Town is the largely Muslim community of Bo-Kaap, home to many descendents of the city's first Muslim inhabitants. The worn, cobblestone alleys, pastel buildings, and minarets from mosques that dot the town’s landscape provide the perfect subjects for you to snap that perfect photo to send home to your friends.
