Drove 2 hours on a dirt road today to avoid Cedarvilles toyi-toyi where they were protesting having not had water for 3 days. 3 Days! Bonkers here it really is. I thought it must be that start of the election protesting issues – weve seen election rallys but nothing like this yet- but it was 3 days without water. Cant really moan about my extreme diversioning when its 3 days without water. We have many times without water or electric but 3 days is crazy biscuits. This county is mad mad mad. So much poverty and struggling yet so much richness and excess. Somehow I doubt elections will actually change anything. But maybe Im used to UK politics and have no hope of actual change.
