The power has been out at home since about 6pm last night. Last night I played guitar and wrote in my journal by candlelight…I don’t think it gets more Peace Corps than that! This morning I really needed to bathe but we still had no electricity which meant so way to heat the water for my bath. But being the resourceful PCV I am, I remembered that the Peace Corps office has a generator, so I brought my large basin and a plastic cup to bathe at work! On the way I passed a woman who we buy bread from and who I pass each day going to and from the office. “Why do you need that basin at work?” she asked. Embarrassed, I sputtered a reply about needing to bathe.
