Greetings and sanitations dear reader. Our Namaqualand travels are over and we are back in the land of semi-reliable internet access [*]. Pictures and stories will be posted in the fullness of time – but for now we need to take out our weekly frustrations on a defenceless Old Master.
As you will see, there are some bonus pics in this week’s post. I have no idea what you’ve done to deserve it; just grin and bear it. There’s a good chap.
And for some additional amusement and time wastage (at no extra cost) – a series of pictures for the cricket enthusiast.
[*] I would like to apologise on behalf of the lying swines at Vodacom, MTN, 8ta and Cell C (for all of whom we have data bundles) who create expectations of “Nationwide Coverage” with their poxy data services. During our travels (again), we found many places where there was no signal whatsoever (quite understandable in the more remote areas), but what infuriated us was that even in the larger cities, the speeds were deplorable and prohibited the upload of posts and images.
Mindful that South African data charges are amongst the highest in the world, I would strongly urge the abovementioned companies to reduce their marketing budget (spending outrageous sums on useless tat, entertainment, and ubiquitous, misleading signage) and divert those funds into improving their service delivery.
