Nelson Mandela Square revisited

I have posted about Nelson Mandela Square next to the Sandton City Shopping Centre before (here and here), but on my recent visit to Johannesburg I couldn't help but snap another few pics to post on here.  It was also the first time that I was in Jozi with the family and wanted to show them all the sights that I have only told them about.
The six meter high statue of Nelson Mandela standing in the square is the main attraction for visitors.  It's impossible to stand there for longer than a minute or two without somebody posing for a photo at Madiba's feet.
The tall building in the background is the landmark Michelangelo Towers which stands 143 meters high and must be one of the most distinctive buildings on the Sandton skyline.

  2. That's quite the impressive statue, and Nelson Mandela and his accomplishments are just as impressive, if not more so. Cheers!
