Current Location: Placencia apartment, day 27

08.19.10

Price of beer in a bar: unchanged at “just cheap enough to be tempting” and “expensive enough to eventually undermine our budget”
Song currently stuck in my head: Neighborhood 3 (The Arcade Fire)

The town’s power is getting shut off in about an hour, if it gets turned back on early enough I’ll post an update. In the meantime it’s a mad dash to get laundry done before it powers down during the wash cycle, then later it’s lunch at a local place with a generator.

    Hi there…is the power outage a daily thing? That could be very annoying!!! BTW, in an earlier post you commented about bugs…well the mosquito’s are so bad around here this summer!! They are more than plentiful and HUGE. Even OFF does not keep them away!

      I’d heard about the mosquito problems in Chicago; that sucks because one of the big advantages of living in the city is fewer bugs. Power outages probably happen every week or two, which is happening here in Utila too.
