    Nothing really changes.

    Posted this 2 years ago, some where and in my blog.
    Power is on and off, rains have started, 15 hours no power 2 days agoo.
    Have we learned, no chance, things are still the same.

    POPULAR
    Power gone again, only the light of the laptop in the night. I buy rechargeable flash lights, which no one re charges and have hurricane lamps and no kerosene.


    Power goes, but no rain or wind, in the distance you can see the lightening and hear the dull roar of thunder. The village goes black and dogs bark, the dogs go silent, then the village dogs, which are dingos which can not bark, but howl. They go silent.
    All is silent, but without the lights of man the wild dogs come and maybe some of the bigger predictors. All dogs, people, chickens, pigs and ducks stay quite. Who knows what lurks in the dark.
    The lack of sound drives the kids to bed and I sit upon my stilt porch, watching the coming storm.
    It maybe the jungle. but for me it is a better place than I have ever been. Jim
