On Monday (9 Feb), I was a guest of the US Consul General (Mrs Alberta Gale Johnson Mayberry, Ph.D.) who met me after reading the review of “My Karate Odyssey” in the Cape Argus – Cape Town’s largest daily (Monday 2 Feb – see http://www.karateodyssey.com/html/the_argus_feb__09.html ). The time spent with her was rather pleasant and one of the aides took some pictures of me presenting Mrs Mayberry with a copy of the book. They will include that and a small review of “My Karate Odyssey” in the Embassy newsletter.
