Yesterday Cape Town paid respects and said goodbye to easily one of the most remarkable men and hands down greatest leader of the 20th century: Nelson Mandela. Emotions were running high and at times I was torn between crying and laughing. As we stepped out onto the field, 'My African Dream' rang out over the crowd, the source of the melody being a small but fierce African mama on stage. Instant goosebumps. This is why I love being South African. Such a great collective of people and emotions brought together by one fantastic man in life and now, death. I can't describe in words nor do these photographs do the day justice. Thank you Madiba - may you sleep soundly now.
