Carnival during New Years
I have always wanted to attend the carnival in Cape Town because of its historical significance. The area where the carnival takes place is where the slaves settled. On January 2, it is said that the slaves were able to have the day off. Later on after slavery ended, the people from the Bo-Kaap community, which is a predominantly Muslim community, incorporated the minstrelsy which was introduced from america in the early 1930's, with the slave tradition...It was definitely a trip of a lifetime!
