ESKOM SURVIVAL SKILLS

Taber & Silka: 

"We came across this awesome website: http://mashable.com/2014/10/05/zombie-apocalypse-diy/ and thought these zombie apocalypse tips really applied to South Africa these days. With no power across vast sections of the country, it's like we already have the zombie apocalypse.  People can't cook, do washing or have any form of electronic entertainment. We are essentially stumbling around in the dark lazily, waiting for something to happen. Wait?? Does that make us the zombies?

If you are not a zombie, then here are some awesome things to help you survive with no power."
