I am really lucky not only do I get to experience some first world gadgets, like TV's and DSTV, and Smart phones, Ipads, laptops, and internet fraudsters trying everything in their power to make me part with my money, I have discovered during the not too distant past that I
am in fact a princess and that my wealth uncle has left me millions of dollars all I need to to get all these dollars is to pay a "small admin fee". I never realised I had relatives in Nigeria..... I have also over the past months won the American, British and Australian, lotto all of which I can claim ........ with a small admin fee up front, all of which I have never entered, does anyone else find that odd is some small way?
I also get the third world experiences like absolute poverty people living in cardboard boxes
children playing on rubbish dumps people robbing you of your roof when you are still trying to live under it, or stealing your car radiator so that it can be sold for scrap metal, people stripping perfectly good houses which have the misfortune of being left unoccupied for a few weeks, to sell off as scrap for a few rands. Welcome to Africa.
Now I know exactly where my matches are after all my claim to fame is that I am super organised, I get home feel up the fridge ( am sure that I heard it giggle) because that is where I keep my matches hey presto two boxes of matches....... with one match in both boxes........ my housekeeper who is sooooooooo lucky she is not here as she is the smoker of the family and used up all the matches ........... so with one chance I light my first candle..... whoop whoop success...... and we have light.........
Looking forward to this happening all the time, as we have been warning rolling blackout will be a part of our lives for at least the next two years, I now have candles and matches all over the house in fact all set for the apocolypse, and the lights stay on.............. just got to Love Africa.
