I met up with my friend Pilate, who showed me around the south african township of Diepsloot. One of South Africas most dangerous neighborhoods. The township of Diepsloot is just north of Johannesburg and a very interesting place to visit and not nearly as bad as it´s reputation. You can see people going about their daily business. and dogs playing and fighting in the street. Pilate showed me his home and it was a very humbling experience.
Diepsloot is a densely populated settlement in the north of Johannesburg, South Africa. It is made up of government-subsidised housing, brick houses built by landowners as well as shacks. These shacks are built on any piece of land with nothing already on it. Some landowners charge rent to others to stay in a shack on their land.
