Looking for South Africa

0

Oh yay! Happy day! The Film Festival press office called this morning to say they’ve upgraded my (horrible) yellow card to a blue card! Yay! No more feeling blue, now that I’ve got the blue! I know it’s not pink. But at least it’s not yellow. Slowly clawing my way back up this card ladder.

Mission today was to find the South African office in the “International Village” (where all the various countries are represented). And after walking, and walking (hoping to eventually get Jennifer Aniston legs with all this exercise), mission was accomplished! And met the very hard-working and glam Thandekile Sishange and Trusty Ndimande – featured in the photos below.

In love with Cannes again!
