My car decided to give up the ghost this afternoon. Well actually it was the battery that gave up. I think the heat out here destroys them pretty quickly.
After waiting an hour for the roadside-assistance guy from the insurers (thank goodness I wasn’t still in Jozi) I consulted my dear friend google (thank goodness for mobile internet) and found, on expatwomen, the number for a battery dude.
And wouldn’t you know he and the insurance guy arrived within minutes of each other despite me telling the first not to bother after 80 mins had passed.
