    Mmmm. There used to be quite a few. I am now in Auckland. Leslie Hempel is still around but much less prominent. Squidlips has been very scarce lately. Horsfield as well.

    Seems like East London is falling apart since I left. :lol:

    Weird you say that, speaking to a Manchester reefer the other night and he reckons it is the other way round.

    There is no doubt its more expensive there... but I earned so much more and had such a better life style there. In my field, especially in East London, we get paid a little next to nothing.

    On the upside the weather is good here! ;)
