London, December 2013
A short stay to visit family… Having my raincoat with me (classic London weather), and my tiny nikon. I arrived on the day Madiba was layed to rest in his home town and it was lovely to see that also in this city the Love for this man is Huge.
In the subway…
The South Africa house
And here some new friends I met along the way (in and around Hyde Park)
And now I also know what it feels like to be bitten by a gorgeous tough little squirel 😉
Here the reason for my visit to London…
While having a drink, two of M’s best friends where on a secret flight from Amsterdam to the UK to make a surprise visit.
All the girls together again! MAGIC! Just some shots of that moment.
Landing in Amsterdam Schiphol Airport
I realized I had one image of him somewhere in my archive…an image where he’s holding hands with his wife Graca Machel when he was visiting Amsterdam in 2001. It’s a bad picture but I remember standing in the crowd trying to keep my tiny camera steady and not moving while standing in a huge crowd.
But hey…I’m so happy that I have this photo to hold in my hands.
