‘You have new president? I see it on Al Jazeera. Mabrook. But everything happen so peaceful. So nice. I like this about South Africa very much.”I smile at Tarek, my Egyptian colleague. And not only because of the way he pronounces my name. When Egyptians say “Ridwaan”, it comes out as “Rudwaan”. But they spell it “Radwaan”. As do the Lebanese. Tomato, tomato, I suppose. What’s in a name? Except, I have a Tunisian friend who calls me “Redwaan” but spells it “Redouane”, which is pushing it a bit, I think.
