In my country of birth I read a news article about a factory that made fire extinguishers had been gutted. Here in Cape Town today I heard a radio news report of how firemen/women had to flee the Gugulethu fire station as it was torched by protesters.
The irony is not bitter but tragic-comic.
Not unlike being stranded in the middle of the ocean.
