This morning I went to the gym and the power was out, to the whole building. This isn’t a rickety little gym but a rather high-end name brand gym. I went in and it was quite dark and I gave the workers behind the front desk a puzzled look. They said the gym was still open but the power was out, they weren’t sure why. It had been out all morning, they’d placed the requisite phone calls but no response. One if the employees made the joke that since it was a national holiday, everyone had the day off. I still got an excellent workout in and there were only a few people who came in and left while I was there. Most people just gave a shrug and figured out how to work around the issue.
Gotta be flexible. This is Africa.
