But you should know that this wasn’t any Maximum Security Prison. This was the one where Nelson Mandela was held for the last two years of his total 27 years of ...
... drop off to sleep like that every night!
It struck me that I was in the Southern Hemisphere when we were flying West, but the Sun was on my right, to the North! That was a real mind trip! I keep thinking we are headed the wrong direction. My internal compass has gone askew.
I had a lovely first evening here in Stellenbosch, which is North of Cape Town. My host is another Cornell colleague who is here developing new ...
