But a lot has changed this year and this year's summer, compared to last year, is looking very different.

  1. Having to decide what food and drink you want to bring along can be a difficult decision and can take up a lot of time.
  2. When you show up with your snacks and meat and everyone now thinks it's a free-for-all

But the worst part has to be waiting in line at the braai.

If you don't get there first you could spend the whole day (or night) waiting for a space on the grill, while watching the rest of the guests eat their delicious meals.

So at the end of the day, the whole point of communal eating and sharing that experience never even happens.
