Good luck to the village of Haaksbergen in the Netherlands. They had a lot of power faillures last weekend due to bad weather conditions. The mayor was complaining that these things should not be possible in these times. Seen in a wider perspective, Haaksbergen in Netherlands is not that bad, I guess. Power faillures are still NEWS in Haaksbergen. Here in Nairobi people get used to power faillures, sometimes we have five a day. What might be news here is lack of water: the coming weeks Nairobians are advised to stock up water because of expected substantial water shortage, I read in todays newspaper.
