Tuesday 20/08/91 – Visiting the Matopos


Diary Notes – 23 years ago today I wrote in my hearing impaired son’s diary. I was writing up Hughan’s ‘Diary’ so Vanessa, at The Carel du Toit Centre in Cape Town (South Africa), knew what we were doing at home, in Gaborone in Botswana, so she could track Hughan’s progress. 

We spent the morning shopping. We met up with friends in one of the stores.

Later we visited the Matopos for a braai (bbq) with the people we are staying with. It was fantastic to go back there as I haven’t been back for about 20 years.

We saw lots of wild animals and Vil was very impressed with all the rock formations.

I was born and brought up in Bulawayo so it’s lovely to see the place again. It is still the same!


(Helping parents with hearing impaired children through our experience…we are following our profoundly deaf son’s diary, from 1990, so you can see what we did to help him with his speech and hearing. Hughan is 25 years old now and he can hold a conversation on a phone. It is the little thing we did every day, over a long period of time, that has helped him.
