lunch break stories: running out of gas

You’ll get used to that the filling stations in Outapi are sometimes out of gas for up to 24 hours especially around payday. Friday I ran out of gas for my kitchen stove. Not a big deal. Usually you can exchange the empty bottle with a new one at my favorite Indian supermarket or a couple of other places in town. Not this week. Rumor has it that the whole country is suffering from a supply shortage. A few minutes ago Ice, one of our drivers, went to Ondangwa – my empty bottle in the trunk. Afrox Oshakati is the only chance left to get it filled up otherwise I have to stick to my camping stove for the rest of the week.
Camping stove it is for the rest of the week. Afrox is expecting the delivery earliest on Friday.
