Temperatures of -4 degrees, banking woes and apartment drama all helped make my first birthday out of South Africa – and in New York – a very memorable one.
Luckily there was plenty else to make it memorable too.
Like a trip to the Museum of Modern Art – aka MoMA.
Like hundreds of tweets, FB messages, SMSes, phonecalls, Skype chats and even a mention in the budding new newspaper, the New Age.
Like a dinner with friends, new and not-so-new, at a familiar spot in Brooklyn…called, of course, Madiba!
