Just around 8 p.m. on this Furahiday evening the who­le of Embu expe­ri­en­ced a power fail­u­re — and I was bles­sed with a won­der­ful new expe­ri­ence: a silent town.

The music @ the Night Club next door stop­ped play­ing, ever­ything dark and I just reached out for my can­doooools which I had bought the other day for exact­ly such situations.

Unfor­tu­n­a­te­ly, the electri­ci­ty came back befo­re I could fall asleep…electricity = 24h of music music music…soukous, ben­ga, hiphop…and some Micha­el Bol­ton, Dol­ly Par­ton & other tor­tures. Well…if you can’t beat them, join them.
