Hello, we are now back in Germany. It was a very intresting trip to Township Langa. We get a lot of Informations and Impressions. Very warm thank you to the Guides. Greetings from Wiesbaden Irmgard Zimmermann - Zimmermann Irmgard

The time at District Six Museum was a Little short. The two visits at townships were realy good. Both guides (in the minibus and the local i Langa) were perfect and very informative. Nice that the guide in the minibus live in Langa and was able to tell local storys. - Anna Marie Thoestesen
