2022 was extremely hard on football fans.

So let me get that straight: Eskom, our permanently cash-strapped purveyor of electricity, is gifting us the option of buying and paying for their only product?

For a time span of 24 hours?

Thank you so much for your generous gift, kind sirs. =^.^=

And we suffered severely in 2019 as well.

Ok, I gotta admit we’re having summer here, so blackouts are inconvenient – and costly – but at least not dangerous. We’re still so happy to be here at the Cape and not back in northern Europe were people will be freezing to death this winter. ๐Ÿ˜ฎ
