Settling into the Big House
We have been waiting for many months for electricity, but it is no nearer today. The Ishimwe board approved the purchase of a big ticket purchase - a generator. I was led to believe that it was a silent one, but it's very loud. We' ve built a shed for it, but we can't close the doors or it will overheat. Despite the roaring, we do enjoy having power between 6pm and 9pm. Light makes a big difference to our evenings. We also have a refrigerator and we put the generator on for an hour in the morning to keep it at least halfway cool. We thought electric light would make us stay up late, but so far we are still going to bed at 9pm. Pretty tired most days!!
