We stumbled on the statue. I didn't know it was there. We were all gratified and happy to see it and so of course took pictures. A fitting way to honor a remarkable man.

A statue of the great man who was held captive for years before being released and going on to become president of South Africa. To be honest not the best statue.

Nelson Mandela is in good company; Ghandi is off to one side and Churchill (at a higher elevation than the others) are depicted in near-life proportions. It surprised us how dimunitive Mandela was but, pound for pound, he made an impact and left his mark...More
