As I entered my room in Jo’burg, I found this note:
Dear Valued Guest,
We are currently experiencing the effect of the blasting from the Gautrain project.
There is no prior warning of the blasting, and it can and has occurred at any time, particularly in the middle of the night.
This is beyond our control, but wanted you to be aware, so that if you do experience the building shaking, that you are not alarmed in any way.
We apologise for this inconvenience, and hope that it will not detract from what we presume is an otherwise comfortable stay.
Just as I finished reading, I felt the building shake. Just in time information…
