A few weeks ago, I took group of newbies from work on a tour of Durbs with Sthembiso of Street Scene Tours.
I learnt a whole lot about the city I grew up in - I didn't know that Mrs. Balls chutney, a veritable institution in this country, was first made in a kitchen at the end of Ridge road. Take that Cape Town with your monument - we have chutney.
Anyway, I was so stoked by all of the beautiful "scenes" in area's that some call the dodgy part of town that I took some pics.
First, we had a walk through Victoria Street Market.
|Beautiful Zulu bead work|
|This oke, making this skirt|
|F#ck-off hot chillies|
These, apparently, are some kind of nut... the guy said they're addictive. they certainly look it.
We took a stroll through the spice market. The most amazing aroma in that place
Then took a walk across to to Warwick Triangle, sadly I couldn't take any pics in the muti market. They have a lot or dead animals there that they use for all sorts of things and don't want any evidence floating around.
|Truly, a ton of potatoes|
|Bright purple cabbages|
|Gorgeous frilly aprons|
|Piles and piles of incense|
|The funnest post-boxes I've ever seen!|
The tour was such fun, cant wait to go on another... you really should try get out there
