Paying respects to Nelson Mandela.

We drove the ten minutes from our Franschhoek address to Drakenstein Correctional Centre, to pay our respects to Nelson Mandela.
Mr Mandela spent the final 3 years of his imprisonment here, in what he called his ‘gilded cage’..

A sombre, yet celebratory atmosphere greeted us, as we joined others in laying flowers, signing the condolences book and staring down the infamous ‘road to freedom’ and remembering the incredible belief and achievement that was his life.
RIP Nelson Mandela.
