My Dad's nostalgic journey home

Freedom fighters that want Robben Island to reflect triumph over oppression!

My Dad journeyed back home to Cape Town, South Africa, after 22 years. He stood in awe as he took in sights that has become so unfamiliar yet the memories stay vivid as if they happened yesterday!
He took a boat ride to Robben Island where one of the world's most revered statesman, Nelson Mandela, was imprisoned for 27 years. Nelson Mandela led the struggle against apartheid and was the first democratically elected state president of South Africa in 1994.
