Wendell Ogitani, left, and wife Karen of Pearl City, and Anna and Mike Hinkley of Kaneohe found the Kauai sandwich shop in Cape Town in September during a tour of South Africa. When Nelson Mandela, South Africa’s anti-apartheid leader and former president, died Dec. 5, Wendell Ogi­tani said the trip took on a greater significance to the Hawaii travelers. “We got to experience the influence and appreciation of Mandela … while he was alive,” said Ogi­tani. “There were statues, buildings, streets named after him. He’s even on the currency.” And later, the momentous trip became part of the Ogi­ta­nis’ Christmas card.
