Digital nomad tweets Cape Town – Photos

As previously reported, National Geographic travel writer and wanderer, Digital Nomad Andrew Evans is currently experiencing the unexpected Cape Town. 

Andrew has been a great ambassador for Cape Town, enthusing about his experiences to his more than 14 000 followers on Twitter. 

Andrew spent some time in the Bo-Kaap, Cape Town's Cape Malay Quarter. Here are a few images (with captions by Andrew) of his experience thus far. 

Goeie dag (Good day). Ready for your daily view of Table Mountain? I’ve become transfixed by this new stone in my life.

Sun rises over the Muslim cemetery in the Bo-Kaap.

Cute kid in the Bo-Kaap. I asked him what colour his house was and he said “Blue" - what a comedian.

Hiking up through the candy-coloured streets of Bo-Kaap, the old Cape Malay quarter of Cape Town – it's beautiful.

Hanging out with Fazielah Williams, born and bred Capetonian, standing high above the city on Signal Hill.

Mirian, 60-year-old resident of Bo-Kaap, with 26 great-grandchildren. Her grandfather came from Palestine.

Pink and green homes side by side. Bo-Kaap brings new meaning to “cape coloured” – everything is painted so brightly.

Samoosa in the Bo-Kaap – spicy, meaty, fried, chili deliciousness. Live the colour and heat of this 'hood.

Tonight’s dinner is African isityu segusha nommngusho – there's a click in there –stewed lamb with maize and pumpkin.
