On Friday afternoon, the brand new Aura Spa on U Street received a private visit from Zindzi Mandela and Zondwa Mandela. Zindzi is the daughter and Zondwa is the grandson of South African president Nelson Mandela who are in DC for the ten-foot statue unveiling of Mandela’s likeness at the South African embassy. Ms. Mandela will be speaking at the dedication ceremony on Saturday. Zindzi and Zondwa received a first-hand glimpse of the new Aura Spa, which is slated to open officially on Thursday, October 17. Both received a signature Aura deep tissue massage with detoxifying aroma therapy.
