I forgot to mention in the last post that I saw some of the aftermath of a nationwide municipal workers strike in South Africa.Unknowingly, we went to Middleburg the day after the strike and noticed the whole city was dirty, with trash cans dumped over and things like that. Everything, for the most part, was business as usual though. I realize that some of you are avid news readers and may have come across the story in the NY Times or the Washington Post. I won’t even begin to attempt to explain the current political situation here, as I fear it is far to complicated. Check out the stories if you haven’t already, they will give you an idea.
