Some turbulence in the sky.

When I looked this week into the festivities dedicated to Earth Hour within South Africa I discovered that it in fact had nothing to do with ‘carbon footprint’ and so on. It’s all about food, drink and parties and here and there, for one hour only, the lights are switched off such as those of Table Mountain. We kept it quiet in our street. The local municipality did not switch the street lights of as promised but than these lights are very low in energy use (contrary with those in Cape Town BTW). We just sat on the verandah in the dark and watched the movement above us. One of the neighbours went to Hermanus with the family to celebrate the Earth Hour party over there; seemingly not realising the ‘carbon footprint’ the car left behind ….. 😉
