Living in Nigeria, a constant supply of electricity is very rare. There have been times when we’ve had ‘light’ (as they call it here) for two whole days in a row – and this is a big deal!
When we don’t have light, we use a generator. It is noisy and consumes diesel quickly (but we couldn’t live without it!). Although we have a generator, when light ‘comes’, everyone breathes a sigh of relief.
