GOODBYE MR. CHIPS


A while back I wrote a post about my experiences in South Africa and someone identified simply as “unknown” posted a very kind comment to which I responded enthusiastically. Today that person identified himself as Ivor Sarakinsky, a scholar who now teaches at the University of the Witwatersrand. Curious, I googled his name and came up with a video of him being interviewed on recent events in South African politics. This was quite gratifying but there was something strangely wrong with the video. It was of a bearded middle-aged man and I’m quite sure that none of the students I taught 34 years ago in South Africa were bearded middle-aged men! I am afraid I am having another one of those Mr. Chips moments.
