As promised this is the last part of little trip to Sandton. The pictures of this second part take place in a museum. Doris and I absolutely wanted to take pictures inside the museum but someone told us it’s not allowed. Hopefully we did not take his word for it and went to enquire from the curator (a very nice man by the way) who told us the only pass to enter and take pictures inside was a smile. He then explained to us that the museum is dedicated to the Nobel Peace Laureates. After that we had the museum for ourselves to wander about and take as much pictures as we wanted.

Reconciliation time

That’s us with the curator of the museum. I’ve rarely met such an amiable person in my life. He made the visit to the mooseum (reference to the cow in picture no. 2) all worth it.


The curator gave us each a gold coin with Nelson Mandela in one side of the coin. Yes you need to visit the museum to get yours too. I want to believe that we were so special that he only gave them to us but I don’t think so. By the way, the day before was Nelson Mandela Day (18 July, date of his birthday that is a public holiday in South Africa).


I have to say it’s so nice to be with someone who is just as excited as you are to take pictures. Doris and I were like two kids asking the other what next? How about we go there? And there? Strike a pose. Yeah, try to look more natural. Yes, that’s it.

I can assure you that it was a fun day. Too bad we didn’t sit and dine to relax after our long “photoshoot”.

Outside, we saw a Ferrari so the obvious thing to do was to start another séance of picture taking. Here we go again the last pictures of Sandton (I swear these are the last).
