Nelson Mandela's Legacy

Just like many people, I was saddened by the news about Nelson Mandela passing away.

He showed immense courage, incomparable strength and stern determination towards an idealism. And he delivered it despite most of his life spent in prison and the struggle outside those years. Nelson Mandela represented Hope, Peace, Freedom, Justice and Human Rights. He inspired nations, always does and always will. 

The birds of Robben Island

As I was in Cape Town (back in 2012), I visited Robben Island where Nelson Mandela was imprisoned for 17 years. The atmosphere was joyful among other visitors and it was clear that the people of South Africa and other countries came to the Island to understand the history and put in perspective his achievements.

Driven by Freedom

This Journey's never long when freedom is the destination

Proud South Africans

(apologies for the quality of the photo - my enthusiasm took over technique!)

I hope that Nelson Mandela was proud of what he did. I am sure these young kids are proud of him and always will be.
