Bo-Kaap, colorful houses and a lot of people

Bo-kaap is one of the top things to do in Cape town when you google things to do around here, its even on a list of reasons to stay in Cape town, but to be honest they also think a reason to stay is the English bull terrier club.  Why would I want to stay because of a dog club?

Bo-kaap is filled with history, colorful houses and so many people.  I personally didn’t like it much, just because of tour bus upon tour bus of people all trying to walk around these narrow streets, taking photos of the houses.  So many people doing handstands trying to take just the perfect photo and the poor owners just standing on their porch looking really confused.  These cobblestone streets are interesting to walk around, but to be honest, I’ve seen better cobblestones and a quick walk around was enough to satisfy my curiosity.
