One must not miss an opportunity to take a Photo shoot near the 28 feet tall,Mandela Statue,in the Union Buildings Gardens,wherefrom he gave the Freedom Speech in May 1994.
The Union Buildings is a semicircular Sandstone architecture,made in 1910.
I was impressed with the photographers’ ability to give you a memorable picture by the side of Mandela,within a minute..a mini printer on their hands!

I normally love to spend time with some dedicated painters from Basilica of Sacre Coer,Paris to Siem Reap.I saw Sanusi sincerely painting Mandela in different poses.When I bargained for this painting,I made out from his slang that he is an Ijebu from Nigeria.He was so stunned to know I was in Ijebuode ,he gave me a 50% Discount..I love the way he has painted Mandela!
