Being in Gauteng is sometimes a big disadvantage.

Struggling up from the other side of the Linksfield Ridge before the sun had done anything but paint the road red, I arrived at the petrol station in Cyrildene. I went to the usual spot, picked it up, and realised – it was Isolezwe langoMsombuluko (noma lezolo, since today is Tuesday).
