Autumn elections and haircuts in Belfast

Belfast's new name is Emakhazeni, which means 'place of cold'. It's one of South Africa's colder towns perched as it is on the beginning of the escarpment's edge. Unfortunately 'place of cold' is also a synonym for mortuary in the local indigenous language. I've picked up on much resistance to the name amongst locals.
Other than stopping to take some quick snapshots around town, I was in a hurry to pass through and to get to good coffee 30 kilometers away in Dullstroom. I have never found a decent cup of coffee in this place. Ever.
