I was planning a walk around my very dimly-lit neighborhood tonight. I called home and apparently the lights are off AGAIN! Of course the ironic part is that the electricity company was sure to bring the electricity bill 'round THIS afternoon.
Today's power-outage is particularly perplexing. I could have sworn my eyes glazed across a newspaper article late last week that explained these recent frequent power-outages. The tone of the article was that the current spate (to borrow from the Phrasebook of Overused Phrases in Ghana) of power-outages were to be a thing of the past. So now I'm completely at a loss. But eureka...a light-bulb just went off (sadly only in my head); the power-outages MUST be a sign of the ECG's commitment to promoting romance all over Accra! Why else are we being forced to have dinner by candlelight night after night? Mmm, let's just hope no fires are started because then we are pretty much screwed!
