Tomorrow I leave for Harare where I will be for just over a week. I then go to Cairo to meet up with my daughter, the author, Naima bint Robert, so as to accompany her on a visit to Nigeria where the local publishers of her Muslim women's magazine, Sisters, have invited her for a programme of talks and publicity events. I then return to Cairo to spend some time with my daughter's family, four grandchildren, and then back to Harare - where I hope to have a cataract operation and then with a good load of things I need here and with eyes renewed drive down to Johannesburg  in my old Ford Cortina, 1983, station wagon - very justly nicknamed Nzou - meaning 'elephant'.
