Why can't I get Kraft Real Mayonnaise in Cape Town South Africa anymore?

It would seem that the Kraft "brain-jockeys" in JHB have assembled in the basement somewhere in a secret locale and decided in their infinite wisdom to discontinue the manufacture of Kraft Mayo in SA. Nobody thought that even if you pull it from production, people may still pay for imports for speciality Kraft products...nothing anywhere in JHB stores either.

Since I'm Dutch and everyone must be accompanied by Mayo (The good stuff - not the tangy rubbish) it poses a severe problem towards my personal health and state of well-being.

Why did people move to Cape Town?

Cape Town was first sighted in 1497 by Portuguese explorer Vasco da Gamma.

It was however uninhabited by colonists until 1652; a number local nomadic indigenous people (like the "Strandloopers" - Khoikhoi "Beachwalkers") lived in the region.

1652 was the year that the Dutch explorer Jan van Riebeeck was sent to Cape Town by the Dutch East India Company to start a goods refreshment station (fresh water, food and fruit) for ships en route to India. During these early years of sea travel many sailors died of scurvy and other disorders related to malnutrition on route to the east. The primary objective was to supply ships owned by the company and reinforce their supply routes to the East.

Dutch settlers were the first Europeans to settle at the Cape, but growth was slow at that time as it was hard to get labour. This prompted the import of slaves from Indonesia, Malaysia and Madagascar with many of those slaves being the ancestors of Cape Town's coloured population.

During the French revolution, the Netherlands was occupied by France, and Britain captured many Dutch colonies across the world. Cape Town swapped hands many times until 1814 when it formally became part of the British Cape Colony. The population of the Cape was also bolstered at the time by European (French Huguenots) settlers moving to avoid religious persecution

When the original settlers got tired of British rule they trekked inland (The Great Trek). There was a lot of growth during the 1800's. The discovery of diamonds and gold in South Africa fueled an influx of immigrants. Conflict over land between the ancestors of the original settlers (the "Boers" - Afrikaans Farmers) and the British led to the Anglo-Boer wars.

Today people move to Cape Town for leisure. It is a major tourist destination due to its rich wildlife and botanical beauty.

Cape Town people, girls in particular, do not wear enough clothing. Cape Tonians are characterised by the high proportion of skin to clothing. Minimalism is very very VERY trendy in Cape Town. Shorts often resemble lingerie and often can be seen riding up to places they should not.

What is the best time of year to visit Cape Town in South Africa?

Winter and Spring (July to September) is cold, very windy and wet. This means that it is a good time to visit the city if you are feeling particularly anti-social and do not want to see people on the beaches or on the mountain.

However, as a tourist, the best times are from October to May. Cape Town has a mild climate with a relatively dry summer and long beautiful summer days. The weather during the Cape summer is wonderful.

Note that tourist numbers peak in December and January, causing congestion and higher prices, so if possible avoid that time period.

What voltage does New Zealand use?

New Zealand uses 230 V @ 50 Hz, the same as the UK and Australia. Wall power outlets are the same as Australia - two flat live and neutral blades in an inverted-V shape, with a single vertical flat earth pin below

New Zealand's mains supply is incompatible with appliances designed for the US and Canada (120 V @ 60 Hz) - so do not attempt to put a US appliance in a NZ socket by bending the pins.

High voltage lines are usually at 230/400 V, 6.6kV, 11kV, 22kV (local distribution), 33kV, 50kV, 66kV (sub-transmission), 110kV, 220kV (transmission) and +/-350kV HVDC (the inter-island link connecting the North and South Islands across Cook Strait)
