Langa is the oldest part of Cape Town and it means Sun in Xhosa. 150 000 people live in Langa, most of them are poor and until recently had no access to education and hospitals.

It resembles Brazilian favela but the segregation here is much stronger and it origins within apartheid. The people that live here though are extremely proud of their community,culture, habits and language and of course they are very friendly, happy and opened. They are full of hope that future will become better and will bring better life for their kids. Cape Town is definitely and inspiring place due to the amazing nature and also due to unusual people. Watch this short edit and find out for yourself.
