From London, Philippa went to Istanbul and Beirut to give a series of concerts and meet old friends. Then, by personal invitation, Philippa proceeded to Addis Baba to see Haile Selassie, who had organized a short reception in her honour in the Throne Room of his new Jubilee Palace on Christmas Day. On New Year's Day, 1958, Philippa traveled from Addis to Khartoum. From Khartoum she travelled again to Uganda for a series of performances. But possibly the best part of her stay in Uganda was her visit to the famed Queen Elizabeth National Park on the western fringe of the country. While the West African tour had been a success for Philippa, it was also a soul-searching journey for her. The kaleidoscopic and wearing tour had come to an end and Philippa had been opened up to Africa's complexity and beauty.
