I thought the village or ward chief elections were annoying. All those candidates coming by handing out tissues and election brochures, asking who I was going to vote for and then showing great surprise when I mentioned that, as a foreign resident, I do not have the vote.
On reflection though, I have concluded that maybe the whole thing isn’t so bad after all. As I write this, there are three scantily clad girls dancing on a stage just a stones throw from my balconey. Hey what am I doing writing?
