” It is not what they built, it is what they knocked down.  It is not the houses.  It is the space between the houses.  It is not the streets that exist.  It is the streets that no longer exist.  It is not the memories that haunt you.  It is not what you have written down.  It is what you have forgotten, what you must forget.  What you must go on forgetting all your life.”

A German Requiem by James Fenton.

It was a perfect weekend to be out and about and one of my walks was a small tour of Simonstown in Cape Town, an anchorage for the Dutch East India Company. Thousands of people were  removed under the Apartheid law leaving behind a legacy. The photos are just a brief glimpse of some of the old colonial buildings, the gates behind which the slaves were kept and above, the area they left behind.
