20 Years of Freedom...

This week in South Africa we celebrated the 20th anniversary of the release of Nelson Mandela, from prison. To honour him Virtual Africa have created a panoramic view of Nelson Mandela's Robben Island cell.

And - as I know you most of you don't know it - I share my birthday with Madiba!

Thanks for sharing the images of Mr. Mandella's cell. It makes it all real to me. And it's been 20 years!!! I'd never have believed it. I know he was quite fragile when he came out of prison, as you'd expect. Most probably didn't expect him to live very long. And here it is 20 yrs and he's still here! What a strong man!
I can't imagine what it must have been like in your country before, during and after the struggle for freedom. Congrats on your celebration.
