No nothing wrong there - by African standards anyway  :imaposer:

Health and safety wouldn't like that huh. The guy supporting the scaffolding is doing so for nothing cos the worker isn't standing on it. The front corner of the pallett is in the air and the guy standing on the pallett is wasting his time. No safety helmets - the list goes on  :imaposer:

What you do there Roburt?
Work in IT here... but when you do IT here its becomes everything that uses elictricity including electricity designs :-)
Roburt when you retire will you stay in Tanzania or retire where if your not a Saffer?

Only saw this now :-). At the moment SA still is the place I will retire, most probably somewhere in CPT. Have quite a few friends I met here that's originally from gauteng and are now living in somerset area. SA has its issues, but living in a "real" 3rd  world country opens your eyes of how far SA still needs to go downwards before it even comes close. You do learn to live a lot more minamilistic here, so that helps going down to SA one day again.

@Mr Zog & @Rooikoos , the pics I posted were also at Lumwana, 2012 I think, the drive from Ndola was pure madness.

That is a horrible road, I've done it a couple of times! Luckily nowadays we fly to Solwezi from Lusaka, then it is only an hour or so to the mine.

We also used to fly to Solwezi and then just drive an hour to the mine.

But I do remember sitting in the back of an ambulance with a seriously ill patient one night, with a local driver driving hell-for-leather from Lumwana to Ndola. That night my guardian angel worked overtime  :o  (we had to get the patient to the Ndola airport so he could be flown out, Solwezi airport didn't have a night rating at the time)
Young enough to know I can, old enough to know I shouldn't, stupid enough to do it anyway.
