29+ hours…

And it just came back on.

Why am I awake at 2am? Because it is too hot to sleep without a fan.

So now we are plugging in phones and soon I expect we will both be asleep, comfortably.


Over 24 hours without electricity

The power went out Wednesday night and now as of 10 pm Thursday night, it is not yet back on.

Much of the city is without power, but there are spots that do have it.

Coincidentally, the bottom apartment in our building has electricity, but we do not (nor does the apartment right below us).

Apparently a transformer somewhere had issues and they are trying to fix.

We spent the day on a city tour, then I had English club, and then we went for dinner with our friends from the U.S., so we have not been home to need power.

But sleeping last night was very tough, because the temperature was still in the high 70s/low 80s and with no fan and no breeze, we are covered in uncomfortable layers of sweat. (and no electricity means no water pump which means no real showers, but instead a splash of water here and there to try to fake being clean.)

And with no electricity, I can not work on and post photos from the past week.
