This box was right outside the hotel room we stayed in our last night in South Africa. Sure, I know that "brand" is the word for "fire" in Afrikaans (and Dutch...and German), but I thought the juxtaposition was rather nice. The hotel, in Sandton, about mid-way between Johannesburg and Pretoria, resembled an armed compound, surrounded by a high wall with razor wire and electrically operated gates. Every time I saw this box I imagined myself running down the hall screaming and waving a flaming torch.
