Folks in the Makhalwane neighborhood transform their homes and gardens into art galleries, food stalls and cooking schools and open them to the public. There's also music, dancing, DJs, a night market and a weekend backpackers' camp site. "Makhalwane," by the way, means "neighbor" in Zulu and in a broader sense "community."
