7 years in Tibet

On 11th February 1990 a world and nation changing event happened.  On 11th February 2003 a life changing event occurred.  Yesterday Nelson Mandela celebrated along with the world the 20th Anniversary of his release from prison.  Yesterday, seven years ago, I left Cape Town and boarded a plane to London.  Today I have been in the country seven years.
