Nelson Mandela Tribute Exhibition - Mairie de Paris

There was nothing spectacular about the exhibition as such - photos, texts, videos and a real-size replica of the cell on Robben Island - but I was ecstatic and moved to the brink of tears by this opportunity to introduce my offspring to the singularity of Nelson Mandela.

The kids were, obviously, a bit less ecstatic, but interested enough for me not to lose my momentum.

Incidentally; I don't suppose the credit is due to Paris City Hall, who is hosting the homage, but you will admit this exhibition, right now, is the very epitome of serendipity.
