I believe the first one was due to lightning. The one from yesterday was apparently a blown transformer near Captain Morgan's. When I called Elder today he sounded depressed to hear that the power went again. Luckily it didn't take too long this time. One problem can trigger more problems and I hope they have it under control now. Anyway, we'll be on stand by near our generator tomorrow around 6:30.

A few years ago I wanted to write something very negative about the power outages, but when I researched the internet came to the conclusion that it isn't so bad here. In other developing countries in Africa and Asia, power outages can last days, weeks even months. BEL is generally very quick to react and they have a 24 hour control center you can call: 221 5048.

Now I consider it the price for living in paradise.
