Breaking news from Ecuador (2)


Probably another effect of global warming. It has not rain in Ecuador since one month. And we are in the rainy season. The hydroelectric dams reservoirs are dry and not enough electricity is produced for the needs of the country.
To cope with this situation, and as surprising as it seems, electricity is cut by slots of 4 hours in different provinces. In Quito, in Guayaquil, in Baños, everywhere, every day during 4 hours, no traffic light, no phone, no radio, no TV, no street light, no shop, nothing but thiefs in the dark streets...
Rich countries are polluting. Poor countries are paying.

I've been sick since 3 days. A bad flu. In bed with fever for 2 days. I never felt so bad... So I found my own remedies:





Now I feel better!... :)

Those pictures are beautiful. And I understand about the power, in St. Croix, the power often goes out. It seems as the more fragile the environment at a specific place, the more global warming is effecting it. But for the people who pollute the most, the ones in large cities, they don't see the effects of it and continue to consume beyond necessary.

Ah, well, hope you feel better soon.

Still in Ecuador... :) Were 2 weeks in a mountanous village populated by indian tribes. Completly isolated but wonderful.
And now I just arrived in Cuenca, a city south of Ecuador. Here there are internet cafes, so I'll be able to update my blog ;)
