Load Shedding

Since Nepal can't make as much electricity as it consumes they do "load shedding" which is really just a euphemism for power cut. They at least tell you when they're cutting the power so you can plan around it (if you're really curious you can see the schedule here; I live in Group one). 

It's a fair amount of time some days but I'm getting used to doing things by candlelight (not as romantic when you're alone and doing it every day ...). I figured out that my cell phone has an FM radio so I can listen to the BBC world service. I hear the load shedding is primarily a winter thing (low water in the reservoirs that have the dams that make the electricity) but word on the street is that things will get worse before they get better.
