We are marching steadily into the hot and dry season. April and May are usually the months where we crack 40 degrees, so the two months prior push well into the 30's. That's just life here - except for reasons of mystery, prolonged power-cuts are abounding. Seasoned Westerners here say that this is the worst for 10 years. For us new kids, that would mean the worst in coming up 5 years.
Nevertheless, life goes on, even if that means by candlelight some nights.
Another night; another powercut - looking north from our place. The lights-on building is about 2.5km away, as the mosquito buzzes.
