Day 3 – Slave Lodge

On day three, we visited the Slave Lodge – a museum built in and dedicated to the former institution that held and sold slaves in Cape Town. We passed through St. George’s Cathedral and several of us walked the labyrinth in the courtyard, reflecting on the morning’s experience.

We saw another small museum containing artifacts from earlier settlers of Cape Town, before lunching at Biesmillah’s in Bo-Kaap neighborhood, sampling curried and wonderfully flavored dishes.

Then, to St. Andrew’s church, the former pastorate of our guide, Marius. There, we had a music workshop with Grant Brasler, the director of music and organist at St. George’s Cathedral for four decades.
