 I made the flight from Adelaide to Perth specifically to attend the opening of the exhibition
 'The Afronauts', and was not then aware Cristina was attending and also presenting an artist's talk.
 I am more than pleased that I did and the photograph is the icing on the cake.
A wonderful exhibition. Thankyou Cristina and PCP.
