Crushed sheep heads for sale at a stall on July 28, 2001 in Site B Khayelitsha, a township about 35 kilometers outside Cape Town, South Africa. Sheep heads and cow intestines are popular traditional foods in the rural areas and the people in the township are trying to keep their traditions in the big cities. Khayelitsha is one of the poorest and fastest growing townships in South Africa. People usually come from the rural areas in Eastern Cape province to find work as maids and laborers. Most people don't find work and the unemployment rate is very high, together with lot of violence and a growing HIV-Aids epidemic itÕs a harsh area to live in..Photo: Per-Anders Pettersson/ iAfrika Photos..
