BLACKOUT

We have been two days without electricity. It left us in the same way that it arrived, silent, without warning. One doesn’t notice how many things need electricity until there isn’t any. And one also realizes that electricity and time keep an inversely proportional relationship. Today, we’ve been twice to the market, we’ve done the laundry, we’ve tidied up, we’ve gone for a walk, we’ve looked for a bar that we haven’t found, we’ve made a tasting of nun pan, we’ve learned and practised to read and write in Khmer… The lack of electricity has taken us not to do many other things, but, as they are part of our routine, today seems to count for two days.
